  1. Owls In The Family Chapter 10

  2. Wooden Grain Elevator • Thirty miles south of Saskatoon was a little village called Dundrurn. It consisted of a garage, a couple of houses, and two red wooden grain elevators.

  3. Reed Beds • The lake was about the best place for ducks and geese and other water birds in the whole of Saskatchewan. The reed beds along its shores were full of wildlife.

  4. Sloughs • Between Dundrun and the Sasdatchewan River was a huge expanse of virgin prairie, and right in the middle of it was a slough so big it was almost a real lake.

  5. Prairie Birds • The reed beds along its shores were full of yellow-headed blackbirds, bitterns, coots, and grebes.

  6. More Prairie Birds • The reed beds along its shores were full of yellow-headed blackbirds, bitterns, coots, and grebes.

  7. Ducks • Out on the open water you could sometimes see two or three hundred families of ducks-mallards, pintails, shovelers, and lots of other kinds.

  8. More Ducks • Out on the open water you could sometimes see two or three hundred families of ducks-mallards, pintails, shovelers, and lots of other kinds.

  9. More Prairie Fowl • Sometimes there were flocks of whistling swans; and in the autumn so many geese stopped to rest that they almost hid the water.

  10. The Mowat’s Prairie Schooner • Every summer we used to camp for a couple of weeks near Dundurn in a four-wheeled caravan my father had built. The caravan was fixed up like a little ship called a schooner.

  11. Ship Parts • It had ship’s bunks, a ship’s galley (which is what sailors call a kitchen), ship’s lamps, and a ship’s clock.

  12. The Rumble-Seat • Our Ford was a convertible with a rumple-seat. (A rumble-seat, something cars don’t have any more, was a sort of folding seat placed where the trunk is on a modern car.

  13. Motorcycle Goggles • Because his eyes used to get sore from the dust of the prairie roads, Mutt had to wear goggles-the same kind that motorcycle riders wear.

  14. Muskrat Home • For a while Dad paddled in the open lake, and then we began to explore the reed beds. Soon we came to a muskrat’s house with a mallard duck on top of it.

  15. The “Black Devils” • As soon as they saw Wol the crows forgot all about being cautious, and about my father’s gun, they gathered in clouds and began diving at Wol. The war with the crows lasted unitl Dad was out of amunition.
