"... a skilled blend of social, natural and personal history". -- Equinox
"... a remarkable achievement, at once a taleteller's journey, a family history, a passionate portrait of the chinook, and a poet's vision of the west". -- The Gazette (Montreal)
Leaning on the Wind is a grand blast of writing, a poetic search for the spirit of the land in the foothills of Alberta. Wryly humorous, observant and imaginative, Sid Marty offers us a personal and richly entertaining portrait of the wild and not-so-wild west -- and makes a plea for the preservation of a powerful place and spirit.
