writer Jo Bannatyne-Cugnet and artist Yvette Moore show family life on the prairies. "Each time a farmer plants a crop, it is an act of faith," writes Bannatyne-Cugnet. We witness how that faith is passed on from generation to generation through the months of the year. Grandparents teach the care of baby chicks, the planting of a vegetable garden, how to tell when grain is ripe. Children accept daily chores and special challenges: raising and grooming a show steer, and, in an emergency, midwifing a litter of pigs. Parents go out of their way, often very far out of their way, to turn hockey games, snowmobiling, fairs, auctions, Halloweening and the Christmas season into community events shared with neighbors. The text and pictures reveal Westerners as individuals who tower above the landscape; one likes these people, their optimism, their good nature, their friendliness, their energy. A Prairie Year is a celebration of people who care deeply about each other - all the more because of the distances that separate them.
