The wild wind roared through the trees, whipping her frozen dress around her. The wind stung her cheeks, and cut her throat at every breath.

"I'll soon be there," she encouraged herself. "One more step, one more step, one more step..." At last the final step was taken, and she sprang into the house.

The bitterly cold winters on the Schrocks' rugged, northern Alberta farm test the mettle of the family to the limit. All nine children, with the exception of the very youngest, know what it means to endure hardness in a physical way.

Life is not without its adventures, fears, and suspense as in winter and in summer they share the work and tackle the responsibilities that their primitive lifestyle requires.

But there are compensations; the beauties of nature, the lovely northern lights, enjoyable summer activities, family togetherness, parents with faith in God, and Christian friends.

The frictions and growing-up problems that are normal to all children give opportunity for teaching and learning Biblical truths and spiritual lessons.

Very interesting reading for children of junior and intermediate age.
