Morton secured a list of the writers and wrote to each requesting the original story or a copy of it. The correspondence is attached to each manuscript or typescript.
This story describes the experiences of three settlers from Bowmanville, Ontario who moved to homesteads near Broadview, Saskatchewan, in 1882. The author was employed as a carpenter for the C.P.R. before sending for his wife and commencing farming in 1885.
