OVER PRAIRIE TRAILS is an account of journeys made in 1917-18 across the wilds of Manitoba. Grove was in his element when he made these solitary drives: he loved horses, and wilderness, and his descriptions of them are superb. The purpose of his trips–the spanning of the distance between his job and his little family during a year’s unavoidable separation–gives to this record of travel a warmth and charm that will delight the reader.

From the Back Cover:

In OVER PRAIRIE TRAILS Frederick Philip Grove recalls his solitary and often perilous journeys by horse and wagon over the thirty-odd miles of Manitoba countryside that separated him from his wife and child during a year of hardship. Grove’s exacting descriptions of land and sky are at once serenely contemplative and infused with dramatic tension; he brings before the reader’s eye a landscape by turns magical and menacing. whose-ever-changing moods demand of the traveller the outmost courage, resourcefulness, and endurance.

His earliest work published in English, OVER PRAIRIE TRAILS first appeared in 1992, assuring Frederick Philip Grove a place among the pioneers of Canadian realism.
