Summary "A new authoritative edition of the prairie novel Robert J. C. Stead considered to be his crowning achievement. Dry Water tells the story of Donald Strand from the time of his arrival as a ten-year-old orphan at his relatives' Manitoba farm to his apogee as a successful farmer, the crises he faces during a troubled marriage, and the great stock market crash of 1929. Deftly blending fiction with a vivid portrayal of Manitoba during a forty-year period of intense social, cultural, and technological change, Stead created a work of considerable literary and historical significance."--BOOK JACKET.
