    The Crazy Man
    The Crazy Man
    It is 1965, and twelve - year - old Emaline lives on a wheat farm in southern Saskatchewan. Her family has fallen apart. When her beloved dog, Prince, chased a hare into the path of the tractor, she chased after him, and her dad accidentally ran over her leg with the discer, leaving her with a long convalescence and a permanent disability. But perhaps the worst thing from Emaline's point of view is that in his grief and guilt, her father shot Prince and left Emaline and her mother on their own. Despite the neighbor's disapproval, Emaline's mother hires angus, a patient from the local mental hospital, to work their fields. Angus is a red - haired giant whom the local kids tease and call the gorilla. Though the small town's prejudice creates a cloud of suspicion around Angus that nearly results in tragedy, in the end he becomes a force for healing as Emaline comes to terms with her injury and the loss of her father. Pamela Porter uses free verse to tell this moving, gritty story that is accessible to a wide range of ages and reading abilities.
