Few writers portray the dignity of people trapped by poverty or emotional isolation as compassionately as Gabrielle Roy does in the four stories of western Canada that compriseGarden in the Wind. The effortless craft and poetic sensitivity evident in all her writing are here in full abundance as she recounts the stories of a tramp who belongs to no one, a Chinese immigrant struggling to fulfill his dream, Doukhobor settlers fired by a vision of a new land, and a lonely woman who nurtures her small but splendid garden. Imbued with a poignant simplicity, these are stories of sheer artistry.

4 stories set on the Canadian Prairies in the 1920s and 30s. The common theme is a search for human meaning and communication. Gabrielle Roy makes lovely pictures with words. These were originally published in french and then translated 2 years later into English. Recommended.
