Full Description

One of Canada's greatest sons, E.K. (Ted) Turner helped set the stage for Saskatchewan's economic miracle. Raised on a farm in Rural Saskatchewan, Turner threw open the farm gate to lead the farmer-controlled Wheat Pool to its greatest heights--the Globe and Mail called it "one of Canada's best run companies." He diversified its holding and took on governments and vested interests in order to do it. Never afraid to make tough decisions, he even closed grain elevators in the face of farmer-led protests. Turner witnessed the rise and fall of the family farm, the rise and fall of the cooperative movement, and the transformation of agricultural policy in the age of globalization. From working the land to working with prime ministers, his memoir reveals a man who fought on behalf of farmers--both at home and internationally--while maintaining a sense of balance and the greatest integrity.
