about

Engravedis a collection of stories and essays about Canadians during the First World War, with an underlying focus on how that war changed Canadian society.

Many of the stories are about ordinary men whose absence transformed their families. Even those who returned were never the same. There are also stories here of extraordinary people: Georgina Pope, Canada? first military nurse, and the first Canadian ever to be awarded the Royal Red Cross Medal; John McCrae, the battlefield doctor whose iconic poem, ?n Flanders Fields?still shapes Remembrance Day ceremonies; and war artist A.Y. Jackson, whose vision was altered by the devastation he witnessed in France.

Details about field dentistry, the disastrous Ross Rifle, shell-shock, conscientious objectors, love, abandonment and loyalty make it clear why that era remains engraved across our nation? collective memory.

Contributors include: Timothy Christian, Ethel Edey, Sterling Haynes, Linda Helson, Pauline Hewak, Margaret Lindsay Holton, Barbara Hudspith, Lise Levesque, Todd McKinstry, Bruce Meyer, Jean Ryan, Susan Evans Shaw, Hazel Smith, Michelle Ward Kantor, Carol Leigh Wehking, Anne White and Stan White.
