As Moran describes in a letter “in short, my novel is a rather light-hearted, hopefully, authentic look at the Saskatchewan of 1924. I was at pains to avoid the dust storm-grasshopper-flat terrain syndrome, and instead to portray the beauty of south Saskatchewan as I knew it, the wonderful blend of ethnic groups, and the richness in character of the people who have lived there.”
