Profusely illustrated in b&w and colour with charming, humorous drawings by the author. "John Francis Wilson's droll narrative style and his whimsical illustrations are still as fresh and appealing as they were when he first produced 'The Migration of Skivins' at the turn of the century. The many superb drawings, nine of them in full colour, in which the author shows a striking natural talent and a wholly engaging gift for comic invention, are accurate as well as beautiful, providing an authentic record of farming and prairie life in the late nineteenth century." The amusing exploits of a London clerk, Benjamin Sydcup Skivins, who decides to try his luck as a farmer on the Canadian prairies. Very light edge wear to boards, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine.
