Charles Wilson did it all. He arrived in the West in 1905, the year of Saskatchewan's birth, and experienced all the hardship, success, and suffering that the province enjoyed and endured on its path to becoming one of the most favoured places in Canada today. In the Temple of the Rain God explores how governments and individuals struggled to save western agriculture from the crushing mountain of farm debt and--through Charles Wilson's eyes--tells the dramatic story of the first fifty years of Saskatchewan history.
