Scenes from a Life by Frank Vanyo

From his Prairie childhood of the '20s to his experiences as an itinerant worker riding the rails during the Dirty Thirties, from riding the range as a cowboy and mining ore in BC to serving in the tank corps in Italy during the Second World War, from knee-bolting in a swamill to bulldozing roads, Frank Vanyo's compilation of memories - written with humour and nostalgia - convey the harsh realities of a bygone era and a man's determination to live life to the fullest despite them.
