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.”



Cover by Leanne Jones & Shaun Russell
