Between 1882 and 1920, settlers from Ontario established social and economic structures at Abernethy, Saskatchewan. By virtue of hard work, perseverance, and the critical advantage of having arrived first, they transformed the Pheasant Plains into a prosperous farming community. Using painstakingly collected qualitative and quantitative data, Farmers Making Good traces the areas political and economic development, daily life, and social structure and reinterprets the larger history of prairie agricultural settlement in light of Abernethys remarkable experience.
