From Our Editors

Physical and professional isolation, lack of teaching materials and sub-standard living conditions were some of the additional hardships experienced by rural schoolteachers during the Great Depression. They worked heroically and this collection of individual stories captures their experiences, at times comic but often tragic. With Unshakeable Persistence, Rural Teachers of the Depression Era is based on author Elizabeth McLachlan`s interviews and correspondence with teachers from Alberta and Saskatchewan and is inspired by her own father`s memoirs. With an introduction by Robert Kroetsch and a beautiful prairie cover, this is an excellent gift for teachers or lovers of prairie history.
