of Poets & Pioneers
About the Book:
of Poets & Pioneers is essentially my grandfather’s life from start to finish, with no twists or turns along the way. It begins with some of my great grandfather’s work, and then journeys through Grandfather’s childhood, his time in England and his immigration to Manitoba, Canada. It continues with stories about my dad, homesteading, and the challenges the family faced during the Depression and World War II. It concludes with my story, and acknowledges my grandfather’s writings as the compass and inspiration for my own work.
I believe this book will inspire and empower anyone seeking to confront the odds in their own lives. It is suitable for teens to seniors, and particularly those interested in early Manitoba history, as well as the people who set down roots upon which others have built their lives.
of Poets & Pioneers is mostly a Canadian experience and an underexplored history of the prairies. It tells of an immigrant’s courage venturing to a new land and embracing a totally new way of life. It shares the enormous challenges he and his family faced while embracing the natural elements in the wilderness of Manitoba.
And it does all this through both my grandfather’s writings and my own. Four generations of the Massey family are represented in this book, three of which lived and survived on the Manitoba prairies under some especially harsh conditions and built a legacy that endures to this day.
of Poets & Pioneers is a story of courage, determination, perseverance and forgiveness.
