In "Morning Has Broken," Jean Wells takes a fond look back at life on a prairie farm. Her brother, Allen Rollins Wells, has drawn sketches that enhance the stories.
Like thousands of others, their father, Egbert Wells, settled as a teenage homesteader in Alberta, before the province was born. He married Isabella Rollins, an Ontario/Alberta school teacher.
They raised four children, each of them combining for a time the interests of farming and teaching.
The recollections in the book bring back, to those who lived them, moments that made up the lives of everyone who once lived on a farm. And they will help their descendants know, with joy, what early life was like.
