about

Albert McCarty was born in 1870, the first child of Irish immigrants who had arrived in Canada in 1832. Over his life, he travelled across Canada, following the frontier as it moved further and further west. His stories, recorded by his youngest daughter and originally published by his granddaughter in 1953, bring to life those early days of Canadian history.

From Ontario school days to Manitoba blizzards, Alberta ranching to Pacific Coast adventures, these pioneer tales are filled with humour and warmth. The whole family will be entertained by stories about the big fight at the local prayer meeting where the minister wins more converts by routing the local drunks than praying, and how McCarty's wedding was followed by his bride landing in a snow bank when their sled caught on a particularly large drift.
