$22.95

A unique blend of biography and memoir, From Thistles to Cowpies is both timely and significant. Whether permanent residents or refugees, immigrants desirous to make Canada their home will be drawn to this touching narrative about Canada’s early immigrants so boldly stitched into the Canadian mosaic. With increased interest in DNA tests, the general population is fascinated both with their own as well as the country’s past. Canada’s 150 celebrations encouraged Canadians to look back in time. What better way to understand that past, than through the experiences of those early immigrants? Leaving the world of instant connection behind, modern readers enter the portals of the past through the eyes of those who, like my parents, lived it.

    I have just finished reading From Thistles to Cowpies (Crossfield Publishing) and I wanted you to know how much I enjoyed it!! As a Thomson descendant, I expected to be interested in the Thomson family story…but also expected to have no interest in the Bouteillier side of the story. I was sooo wrong! You pulled me right in!! Good family history and good Saskatchewan and Canadian history.
    Thank you so much Jill for a great read!
