Farmers "Making Good": The Development of Abernethy District, Saskatchewan, 1880-1920

Synopsis

In this newly revised edition of the widely praised original published in 1989, author Lyle Dick revisits the Abernethy district of Saskatchewan and his microhistorical analysis of the development of this prairie community. Between 1882 and 1920, settlers from Ontario established social and economic structures at Abernethy, Saskatchewan. By virtue of hard work, perseverance, and the critical advantage of having arrived first, they transformed the Pheasant Plains into a prosperous farming community. Using painstakingly collected qualitative and quantitative data, Farmers "Making Good" traces the areas political and economic development, daily life, and social structure and reinterprets the larger history of prairie agricultural settlement in light of Abernethy's remarkable experience.
