Little did Addie Wright realize what she would face when she came west from Ontario in 1910 to marry her fiancé, Abraham Hanna.
Based on entries in Abraham’s diaries, Our Bull’s Loose In Town! tells the story of the author’s grandparents as they built their farm and raised a family in the Meyronne district of southwestern Saskatchewan. Through trials and triumphs, sorrows and successes, the horrors of the Great War, the prosperity of the Roaring Twenties and the dark years of the Dirty Thirties, they found strength and courage in their faith, in their indomitable humor, and in their family and neighbors.
This is also the story of the rise and decline of a prairie village, and of the political and social turmoil of a province and country in the first half of the twentieth century, all as Addie lived it.
Margaret G. Hanna grew up outside the village of Meyronne, SK, on the farm that her paternal grandfather homesteaded in 1910. She was a professional archaeologist and curator of Aboriginal History at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, Regina, where her work with the aboriginal community was vast and involved with many tribal elders. She now resides in Airdrie, Alberta. For more, visit margaretghanna.wordpress.com
