To the rapidly thinning ranks of the pioneers, and to the memory of those who have finished their course, who in faith ventured into an unknown land and tamed a wilderness, who shared their limited resources with their less fortunate neighbours, who remained steadfast in the midst of trials and adversities and laid the cor­ nerstones of our present prosperity, who grimly carried on when their sons answered the call to arms ... to these brave men and women who had as their only stay a firm faith in God, this book is humbly dedicated.
