Rudy Wiebe is one of Canada's most cherished and acclaimed writers and renowned for giving a literary voice to Canada's aboriginals. A two-time Governor General's Award winner, his novels, short stories and non-fiction books are provocative but compassionate tales about Western Canadian history and his Mennonite heritage. During one golden autumn on the prairies, filmmakers followed Wiebe around Saskatchewan and Alberta as he reflected on his experiences in a landscape that has informed his destiny as a writer and produced the epic stories for which he's celebrated. Fascinating and wild, these places and experiences shaped Wiebe as a teller of profound stories about Canada's north and west. --- “There are only a few writers against whose lives you measure your own. And Rudy is one of those lives.” - Robert Kroetsch, Author
