About the Author

Wade Hemsworth was a Canadian folk singer and songwriter, most notably the creator of "The Black Fly Song," and, of course, "The Log Driver's Waltz." After Hemsworth's passing in 2002, Governor General Adrienne Clarkson declared his songs "so much a part of our folklore . . . that we didn't realize anyone had written them."

Reviews

"A thoughtful, female-driven interpretation of the classic folk song. . . . [E]ach illustration looks subtly well loved, like it has been folded up and carried around in a pocket all day." * Quill & Quire *
"A quintessentially Canadian picture book. . . . Gloriously illustrated by Toronto's Jennifer Phelan. For all ages." * The Montreal Gazette *
