It was a long way from Grey County, Ontario to the rich farmlands around Souris, Manitoba, but eight-year-old Nellie Mooney (McClung) with her family endured the hardships of the journey, and the harshness of prairie winters to establish their new home. Adapted from Nellie McClung’s autobiography A Clearing in the West.
