Manny’s Memories, by author Ken Caron with his daughter Angela Caron, introduces us to the Métis community of Round Prairie, Saskatchewan through the eyes of a young boy growing up in the 1940s. Manny shares his boyhood memories of the once vibrant community not too far from Saskatoon’s city limits. Though rural life at the time called for hard work, self-sufficiency, and generosity, there was always time to have fun and to enjoy being a young Métis boy. Artist Donna Lee Dumont’s visual expression of Manny’s Memories helps us see the world as Ken, called “Manny” in his youth, remembers it. Norman Fleury’s accompanying Michif translation and narration returns to the language which Manny so often heard as a boy. Manny’s Memories leaves us with a rare and satisfying glimpse of life not so long ago.
