9780002550635: The perfection of the morning: An apprenticeship in nature

Always aware of the spiritual and the mysterious that hover on the verge of all experience, Butala's highly acclaimed memoir of how she left a promising academic career to live as a rancher's wife in a desolate part of Saskatchewan paints a portrait that tells of the abundance of the Canadian landscape, as well as its harshness and social limitations.
