This Just In… A Peasant’s Guide to Canada by Lyn Marsh

Lyn Marsh’s grandparents emigrated to Canada after the trauma of the Finnish Civil War. They brought with them resources and skills essential for survival in an evolving and sometimes hostile environment.

The reinvention of one woman’s life on a farm in Ontario since the 1960s is inspiring -- a revelation of landscape, family, career and evolutionary psychology. Woven with Canadian literary history, stories of danger and grace, hardship and plenty, education and tragic loss, as well as the laughter and love of children and horses, A Peasant’s Guide to Canada is a unique celebration of what is possible to recover when all that once was is lost.
