A Man in Moccasins by Ruari Maclean
A thirteen-year-old apprentice shoemaker sings to his mother on her deathbed as his alcoholic father looks on. Years later, he travels to Canada and meets Annie, a beautiful young American. Together they settle on the Prairie, and almost immediately become accepted for their outstanding shoemaking skills by the indigenous population.
A Man in Moccasins is a remarkable true story about the importance of family – exploring how we all learn to define ourselves in an everchanging world.
“A remarkable true story about Canada's struggle to define itself as a new nation.”
