W.O. Mitchell's 1947 novel Who Has Seen the Wind is a beautiful work which evokes a sense of place by exquisitely presenting both the physical place of the Prairies and the place of childhood.

In this excerpt from the manuscript of the novel the young Brian, aged four, discovers the wonders of the landscape - a landscape of plants, insects, birds - and another young boy. (Used with permission of the W.O. Mitchell Estate)
