Who Has Seen the Wind: 75th Anniversary Illustrated Edition

By W.O. Mitchell (Author)


In Who Has Seen the Wind, Mitchell tells the fictional story of Brian, a young boy growing up in Saskatchewan in the 1930s. As readers follow Brian’s coming-of-age story, they are introduced to many secondary characters who embody small-town Canadian ways of life and attitudes. While this book is well suited for English language arts classes, sections could also be used in social studies classrooms to paint a picture of historical rural Canada. Given the heavy use of dialogue, excerpts could be used for short dramatic scenes. Overall, the language is accessible despite the historical setting. Though the focus on internal conflict and emotions may not capture every reader’s attention, rural learners may see their own experiences reflected in this classic novel.
