About This Item

Canada: Yalenka Books. Very Good in Good dust jacket. 1991. First Edition. Hardcover. 0969118031 . Signed and dated by Peter Shostak upon title page. "A commemoration of early Ukrainian pioneer settlement in Western Canada. Peter Shostak devoted almost five years of painting to visually depict the experiences of these hardy people. The artist's Ukrainian heritage has led him from theme to theme as he tells the story of rural life in Canada between 1891 and 1918. Although the entire series of paintings is based upon Ukrainian settlers, the experiences were common to all ethnic groups who homesteaded in Western Canada. The text has been selected primarily from previously published firsthand accounts related by the pioneers themselves." - dust jacket. Wonderful full-page colour illustrations throughout. 175 pages.
