"For my purpose, I have taken a small square from the tapestry of present-day Canadian life. I have separated the warp from the woof, by selecting a couple of typical families, and a number of characters typical of those to be readily found in any Canadian community today. To the families, and to the various characters, I have applied the acid test of adversity: bereavement, poverty and loss of reputation: while I subjected the whole sample of fabric to the gruelling test of an industrial upheaval." - from the foreword.
