From the author: “My original idea was simply to write about the years I spent on a ranche in Southern Alberta and afterwards in Saskatchewan. On second thought, however, I decided to go back to my childhood days and say something about our family life and upbringing, touching but briefly on an older generation. In this way the next generation may learn a little about their immediate forebears and the kind of people they were.

My book is neither history nor fiction, and it has no special theme, wandering as it does over the years; and what to call it has been a difficulty. If the title I have chosen does not excite curiosity as to its contents, neither will it deceive with false hopes of something more thrilling than I have been able to write.

“For My Children’s Children” I have written, and I shall let it go at that.”
