From the Back Cover:

Who has seen the wind is a novel about a boy growing up in a small town on the Saskatchewan prairie. But it is more than this: it is the ageless story of childhood told with tenderness and humour and without sentimentality; it is the picture of a small town anywhere, drawn with realism and understanding and without malice.

The charming simplicity of Who has seen the wind, its completely authentic ring, and its breadth of understanding established W. O. Mitchell as a writer of major talent when it first appeared in 1947, and has since been acclaimed as a Canadian Classic.

From the Back Cover:

Now a major motion picture by Allen King starring Gordon Pinsent and José Ferrer.

Since its publication in 1947, Who Has Seen the Wind has established itself in the hearts and minds of millions as a Canadian classic. With warmth and insight, W. O. Mitchell tells a timeless tale of a young boy’s growing up in southern Saskatchewan during the years of drought and depression. He captures not only the sweep of the prairie and the loneliness of skies scoured by unending wind, but the varied richness of human nature and the strength of the human spirit.
