an eventful journey

Written by John Harris

Reformed Christian immigrants from the Netherlands pioneered Christian education in nearly every country they settled, frequently founding schools even before they had purchased their own homes, built facilities for Reformed Christian churches and established businesses and careers.

In his book, the author particularly focuses on his experiences during those early years when he pioneered as a teacher or as a principal in the Christian schools in places such as Edmonton, Winnipeg, Lethbridge, Ottawa and Regina. As he reviews his time in those cities – particularly as a teacher and founding principal in his hometown of Winnipeg – he recalls numerous students and fellow teachers by name.

Anyone who remembers teacher John Harris or is interested in the practical side of the early decades of Christian education in Canada will want this book.
