Life is a journey, some lives become much longer journey’s, whether that be physical distance, or emotional challenge. This book is the opening to a series recounting one such highly-eventful life. Our journey begins in the back streets of Glasgow just before the turn of the 20th Century and culminates in the Canadian prairie wilderness. This tale will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions, and have you reaching for the tissues, as you read about the grit and determination that one family needed to try to make their way in life, despite all of the odds against them. “Far away hills look green Sal”, but they still had to try.
