Manny shares his boyhood memories of the once vibrant community not too far from Saskatoons city limits. Though rural life at the time called for hard work, self-sufficiency, and generosity, there was always time to have fun and to enjoy being a young Métis boy. Artist Donna Lee Dumonts visual expression of Mannys Memories helps us see the world as Ken, called Manny in his youth, remembers it. Norman Fleurys accompanying Michif translation and narration returns to the language which Manny so often heard as a boy. Mannys Memories leaves us with a rare and satisfying glimpse of life not so long ago.
