From the Back Cover:

The Power and beauty of Frederick Niven’s descriptive language achieves its fullest expression in The Flying Years. Written in 1935 and spanning the course of prairie development from the 1850’s to the 1900’s. The Flying Years tells the story of Angus Munro, a Scots settler in the Canadian West. Themes of commercial greed and social ambition stand in contrast to the natural humanity of Angus and his relation to the land and its people, the Indians. The vast and majestic wilds of Alberta and Saskatchewan take on a vital presence in the novel, as Niven virtually transforms the natural landscape into a central character, powerfully evoked and intricately bound to his human characters in an interaction which is portrayed with rare sensitivity.
