The Boy From Meadow Lake by J. Elmer Benoit

In this book the author traces his life and that of his family from his parents arrival in 1917 in Meadow Lake, Sask., ranching and farming, his childhood and education, and then his progression through many jobs and careers spanning nearly five decades. He also recounts in detail his three marriages and his three children and their very important roles in making his life worthwhile. His wife of 37 years, Phyllis, was the quiet force that kept the family calm and maintained high standards for morals and manners, learning and loving. His story mixes events from his life and work experiences, many happy, some sad, but mostly interesting and often funny.
