Summary
Set in 1961, when the TransCanada Highway was only two lanes and, in some areas, not paved, In a Wide Country is the story of twelve-year-old Jasper and his mother, Corrine. A single mother, at a time when this designation was uncommon and carried with it serious social stigma, Corrine is a free spirit--or so her son believes until he is confronted with her eventual breakdown. In his debut novel, Robert Everett-Green takes the reader for an astonishing ride in Corrine's 1961 Corvair as mother and son drive from Winnipeg to a farm in Alberta, then Edmonton, then to Vancouver. As they cross the prairies, Jasper learns that his mother's explanations and stories just don't hold the water they should--especially when it comes to establishing who his father was and what became of him
