Parmi ces récits transmis de boyuche à oreille en Amérique du Nord mais d'origine française, se situent les légendes, courtes récits auxquels les Anciens prêtaient foi. Elles ont toujours répondu à un certain besoin psychologique, celui d'assurer la sécurité. Au sein de cet univers m,erveilleux qui rejoint le sacré, nous voyons agir des humains qui, redoutant la solitude, étendent leur espace pour se rassurer; ils libèrent la nature, apprivoisant ou supprimant des esprits mauvais, utilisant pour c faire des moyens religieux ou magiques. Il faut cependant reconnaître qu'en 1985, c'est surtout une valeur patrimoniale qu'on attribue àces récits." - from rear.

"The life story of Andrew Browning Bairdis the account of a remarkable man who was anxious to extend the Kingdom o f God in Western Canada. When he received the call at Leipzig he knew that he would be going forth in faith. Like Abraham he knew not where he was going, for he was unable to secure con crete information regarding the Edmonton Territory in which he was being asked to serve. He accepted the call knowing that he could get only as far as Winnipeg by rail. But the remaining nine hundred miles were a mystery to him. The very fact that he agreed to go with so little information showed the character of the man. Circumstances later brought him back to Winnipeg, and from then on he was to make a significant contribution not only to the West but to the whole of Canada, throughthe influence of the Presbyterian Church and Manitoba College. He was to b ecome one of the great Educationalists of the time. he time.
