Voice of the PioneerLarge Print - 1997
This is a collection of stories which was (first) heard on Bill McNeil's CBC radio program Voice of the Pioneer. There are seventy-five stories (in all)... taken from talks with prospectors, scientists, homesteaders, teachers, bush pilots, and preachers. Each has the urgency and brevity of the spoken word plus a fetching self-reliant ring. If you're from the prairies, from a farm, a town anywhere in Canada, you've heard these voices before. They are not the past, they are the voices of many a Canadian's childhood. Many a famous Canadian speaks with the Voice of the Pioneer: John Diefenbaker, A.Y. Jackson, Greg Clark, Joey Smallwood, Dr. Best, and James Gray.
