"Set in southern rural Alberta, [this book] takes a nostalgic look at life during the Thirties for the folks living up and down Willow Creek. Today, this area boasts some of Alberta's finest ranching country, thriving in the heartland of the famous Chinook Winds. However, Willow Creek wasn't always as prosperous. But even through the Great Depression, the unique people of Willow Creek managed to survive; keeping intact a fierce pride and the welcome ability to find humor even in the seemingly hopeless situations which evolved. This is their story." - dust jacket. Profusely illustrated with sepia-tone reproductions of archival photos. Approximately 140 unnumbered pages.
