Canadian author W.O. Mitchell’s seminal book Who Has Seen the Wind depicts life as a child in rural Saskatchewan in the 1930s. Through stories of everyday events of a young boy trying to make sense of life, death and God, Mitchell addresses the theme of being human, articulating a universal theme in an authentic Canadian Prairie voice.

Seventy years after its publication, “O Human Child” takes a contemporary look at children growing up in rural Saskatchewan, and considers how the tensions and complexities of childhood today both contrast and mirror those of Mitchell’s time.
