My Prairie Life
When I was a Little Girl
by Gertrude Sawatzky

There are distinct differences in the world that grandparents grew up in and the world of their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The more time that passes, the more evident that is. Within this book are one grandmother’s family stories about coming-of-age in the Canadian prairies. Though farm life was a challenge in the Great Depression of the 1930s, these stories of one large family sing with love and spirit.

Gertrude Sawatzky, a prairie farm girl, has adjusted to living in town, in spite of herself, even though the farm and the countryside are never far from mind. The beauty of God’s creation is all around her in Kelowna where she now resides.
