0969118031 175 pages. Bibliography. Endnotes. "A commemoration of early Ukrainian pioneer settlement in Western Canada. Peter Shostak devoted almost five years of painting to visually depict the experiences of these hardy people. The artist's Ukrainian heritage has led him from theme to theme as he tells the story of rural life in Canada between 1891 and 1918. Although the entire series of paintings is based upon Ukrainian settlers, the experiences were common to all ethnic groups who homesteaded in Western Canada... The text selected has been selected primarily from previously published firsthand accounts related by the pioneers themselves." - from dust jacket. Wonderful full-page colour illustrations throughout. Signed by author upon half-title page, dated 1992. Clean, bright and unmarked with negligible wear. An excellent copy of this wonderful work.
