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.

Who Has Seen the Wind. --- W.O. Mitchell, Audiobook read wy WO Mitchell. This a classis piece of Canadian literature written by a classic Canadian author who has read his own work. I have fond memories of taking this tape (it came out originally a long time ago on cassette) along on a long road trip to the west coast with a van full of four kids (no dog though) Somewhere in Saskatchewan on the trans-Canada with the sun beating down on us seemed to be the right time to pop the tape into the player. I remember hearing the beginning and then nodding off to the land of nod (the Queen-bee took one of her infrequent turns at the wheel) and then waking up just in time for the end. Enjoy. Think summer. Think thousands of road miles from home. Think Saskatchewan.
