From the Back Cover:
Few writers portray the dignity od people trapped by poverty or emotional isolation as compassionately as Gabrielle Roy does in the four stories of western Canada that comprise GARDEN IN THE WIND. The effortless craft and poetic sensitivity evident in all her writings are here in full abundance as she recounts the stories of a tramp who belongs to no one, a Chinese immigrant struggling to fulfill his dream, Doukhobor settlers fired by a vision of a new land, and a lonely woman who nurtures her small but splendid garden. Imbued with a poignant simplicity, these are stories of sheer artistry.
“Roy’s writing celebrates existence itself… should there still be readers unacquainted with this superb writer, GARDEN IN THE WIND will serve as an excellent introduction.” – Vancouver Sun
