Who Has Seen the WindAudiobook CD - 2000
Since its publication in 1947, Who Has Seen the Wind has sold over half a million copies in Canada alone, and more than 5,000 copies on cassette. Now, this magnificent archival recording of W.O. Mitchell reading his famous novel can be enjoyed on CD. Hailed as the great Canadian classic of boyhood, Who Has Seen the Wind tells the story of young Brian, who learns about life and death, freedom and justice, as he comes of age in the west. Set in the fictional town of Crocus, Saskatchewan, the novel explores the evolving consciousness of Brian O'Connal, the local druggist's son. Just four years old at the novel's outset, Brian brings a delightfully naive and undeniably canny sensibility to the pivotal experiences of childhood and adolescence. Moving, humorous, and eloquent, Who Has Seen the Wind portrays the beauty and power of the Prairies and of the human spirit, and introduces some of the most vivid characters ever in Canadian fiction. A consummate performer and irrepressible storyteller, W.O. Mitchell reads his best-loved work in the inimitable style that has delighted audiences throughout Canada for generations.
