1 WARWARUK, Larry Rope of Time: A Novel
Cormorant Books, Dunvegan, Ontario, 1991, ISBN:0920953484 
WARWARUK, Larry. Rope of Time: A Novel. (Dunvegan, Ontario): Cormorant Books, (1991). Pp (6),7-159,(1). 8vo, cardcovers. "Out of the mists of NorthernEurope has come a strange breed of anrchists, liberterians, and visionarie s, who settled and unsettled whole regions of the United States and Canada.They were the Finns, Their utopian communites collapsed, their dreams of a new and different world were compromised by harsh climates, hostile neighb ours, and human weakness, yet their legacy of social, political, and intellectual achievement cannot be denied. Behind the challenge to existing political structures was a culture deeply rooted in legend and mythology. Behindthe wanderings, which took them to the United States, Canada, Russia, and then back to the Coteau in Saskatchewan, was a yearning for home and the familiar. From fragments of the past found in letters, oral histories, and other documents, Larry Warwaruk has woven a rich tapestry, a profound and moving epic of a restless courageous and intransigent people. Warwaruk performs his own magic, holding this cast of characters and landscapes together through the omnipresent earth-mother Lempi ('love'), a figure of mythic proportions who presides over birth, death, and memory." - rear cover.
