Congratulations to Adele Dueck, whose novel Racing Home won the 2012 Saskatchewan Book Award in the Children’s Literature Category!
Erik wanted to stay in Norway, but his mother’s new husband, Rolf, has brought the family to Canada. Farming in Saskatchewan in the early 1900s is hard to get used to, and there are problems. Dueck has captured the Norwegian voice in a well-written novel that is rich in detail of the Saskatchewan prairie and the early homesteaders.
