From McClelland & Stewart:
"Over Prairie Trails recalls Grove's solitary and often perilous journeys by horse and wagon over 30-odd miles of Manitoba countryside that separated him and his wife during a year of hardship. Grove brings before the reader's eye a landscape by turns magical and menacing, whose ever-changing moods demand of the traveller the utmost courage, resourcefulness, and endurance.
Published in 1922, this memoir assured Frederick Philip Grove a place among the pioneers of Canadian realism."
