Prince Albert Voice
Do you have the blood of sodbusters, hayseeds or stubble jumpers in your veins? Chances are very good--almost certain-- that you do.
From 1999 to about 2016 Esther and I travelled to dozens of communities all over Saskatchewan and a few in Manitoba and Alberta to do presentations and readings from our books. For most of that time I had a habit of asking audience members to raise their hands if they had ever lived on farms or had parents or grandparents who did.
Almost everywhere--even in city venues--most of the hands went up.
