A Prairie Year (Paperback)

A Prairie Year Cover Image
By Jo Bannatyne-Cugnet, Yvette Moore (Illustrator)


The year begins with hockey, icefishing, and a snowmobile race. Spring brings renewal: the arrival of piglets, baby chicks in the farm kitchen; and outside, the fields are seeded. In summer, there's a dinosaur park to be visited; a calf is groomed for the fair and wheat tested between grandfather's fingers. In fall, a farm auction becomes a party, trick-or-treating is done by pick-up truck, and Clydesdales are driven by teams competing at the world's great farm fair.

The glorious year ends with the arrival of Santa on the main street at night in a pickup truck, while beyond in the dark is the infinite mystery of the prairies.
