ABOUT THIS BOOK
The severe shortage of teachers brought on by World War II meant that teenagers, some with little or no training, were placed in charge of country schools. Trained teachers who had retired or left to raise families were pressed back into service, forced to cope with isolation, loneliness, and poor living and working conditions.
With Unfailing Dedication is a fascinating and enlightening look at this almost unbelievable period in Canadian history, and a worthy follow-up to the author's previous volume With Unshakeable Persistence: Rural Teachers of the Depression.
