8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" (CAD) Owner's name and date, no other markings, a hint of rubbing to foot of spine, Near Fine in unclipped Near Fine dust jacket. Boards, 191pp. Toews writes about her father, Melvin Toews, who was an elementary school teacher, a faithful member of the Mennonite church and who struggle with manic depression. (1.6 JM FO 3/0.

From the Publisher

One morning Mel Toews put on his coat and hat and walked out of town, prepared to die. A loving husband and father, faithful member of the Mennonite church, and immensely popular schoolteacher, he was a pillar of his close-knit community. Yet after a lifetime of struggle, he could no longer face the darkness of manic depression. With razor-sharp precision, "Swing Low" tells his story in his own voice, taking us deep inside the experience of despair. But it is also a funny, winsome evocation of country life: growing up on farm, courting a wife, becoming a teacher, and rearing a happy, strong family in the midst of private torment. A humane, inspiring story of a remarkable man, father, and teacher.
