Visiting the old homestead

We attended an event the other day at the Western Development Museum and took the opportunity to visit the Winning the Prairie Gamble exhibit. If you’ve never been, it’s really a fascinating look at how the province was built after the homesteaders arrived. I like to visit the soddy, which the WDM generously allowed me to photograph and use for the cover of the revised edition of my novel. It’s such a familiar image now that going to the ‘real thing’ feels like a trip back to the family farm. For anyone who has seen the book and wondered what was just beyond that window, here’s a view from the outside, too!
