At the end of the nineteenth century, Canada opened its western frontier to mass immigration, and from this the pioneer legacy was born. ZHORNA is a testament to this legacy and chronicles the fascinating but lesser-known aspects of Ukrainian culture and pioneering experience. Author Roman Fodchuk takes the reader on a journey back to a time when survival was a matter of resourcefulness, and ingenuity often meant the difference between success and failure. Although they might at first glance seem mundane, the everyday items of these pioneers tell a story of initiative, tenacity, and the close relationship between themselves and nature.
