About this Item
Wild Rose, an epic story of The West, now long gone, charts Sophie's journey from underloved child in religion-bound rural Quebec, to headstrong young woman to exhausted homesteader to deserted bride and mother to independent businesswoman finding her way in a hostile, if beautiful, landscape. In language that is haunting, elegiac and rich with detail, Butala casts an unblinking eye on a merciless West that has become obscured behind headlines about wheat and oil prices. Sophie's West - filled with sodbusters and cowboys, fallen women and proper ladies, settlers and Indians - comes vividly alive in the pages of Wild Rose, Butala's most unforgettable novel.
