About the Author

As a child, Gerald Benneke was often cared for by a grandmother who had walked out of Siberian exile along with her husband, who later died of long-term consequences suffered at the hands of his Russian captors. From her and his paternal grandfather, Gerald grew up listening to colourful stories of his ancestors, who had homesteaded what was once the relatively unpeopled wilderness of the Assiniboia Territory. A graduate of the University of Saskatchewan's College of Education, Gerald taught History and English at a number of locations in Saskatchewan before returning to the land as the fourth generation operator of the family farm. He lives with Margaret, his wife of forty-seven years, on the 110-year-old site of his maternal grandfather's homestead, in the heart of what was once the largest Doukhobor settlement in Canada.
