Synopsis: This memoir relates the childhood memories of Florence Bell. She lived on the Blackfoot Reserve in Alberta in the 1930s and 1940s where her family worked at the Anglican Mission School. As the daughter of English immigrants to Canada in the 1920s, her life rotated between the culture of Canada at the school she attended in the small town of Gleichen, the morals and manners of the British Empire embodied in her relatives, and the tribal life of her neighbors, the Siksika tribe of Blackfoot Indians. Frugal living during the poverty of the Great Depression and rationing of essentials during World War II contrast sharply with the experiences of her children and grandchildren today, for whom Florence wrote these memories stories of interest to historians and others as well.
From the Inside Flap: As a child living on the Alberta prairies during the 1930s and 1940s, Florence Bell traveled back and forth between the influence of three different cultures -- English morals and manners of her family working as missionaries on the Blackfoot Reserve, her Indian neighbors emerging from their tribal past, and the Canadian people striving for independence.Dust, the Great Depression and World War II added other dimensions.A landscape of grass blowing under a dome of sky became the constant reality used by this Canadian child to forge her own identity. This memoir lets her share the journey with you.
