From the Heart of a Prairie Farm Wife

The farmer's wife has a varied life, This I will admit; She's a working fool from morn till night, So let's consider it. In the morning very early, She's the rooster of the clan; She starts to crow to rise them all, Even her old man.

Maurine Becotte was born and raised in the farming community of Cut Knife Saskatchewan. She was the eldest daughter of Irwin and Margaret Duvall. Her dream was to become a veterinarian, but young women of her time did not become veterinarians so she followed "Societies Rules" and become a school teacher. After a few short years of teaching school Maurine met and married a true farmer, Emile Becotte, of the Seagram District. Together they raised their family of eight children on a mixed farm in the Baldwinton Area of Saskatchewan. They grew a variety of grain crops, but their passion was the herd of purebred Angus cattle that the built from meager beginnings. As their children we were not quite sure which meant more to them; the beautiful black cows that we all came to love or us as children. Neither one lacked for love or attention. Times were hard on the farm and there was always work to be done. Maurine always found time to create fun and joy in life for family, friends and neighbors. She always had the coffee pot on and time to chat with all who passed thru our yard. On one occasion a native family passed through in a horse drawn wagon and the young mother asked for some fresh water. Maurine being the kind person she was gave them the fresh water and a jar of fresh cows milk for the infant child. Some months later that same young woman thanked Mom again for her generosity. Maurine began writing poetry while attending college in 1940, and she continued to write throughout her life. Her poetry is highlighted with ideas that came from everyday life -- the beauties of nature, the love of family and community, the dedication to farm life in Saskatchewan, history, politics and war. In the 1970's and 1980's Maurine and two daughters compiled six volumes of her poetry under the name of Housewife Harmony Volumes 1 through 6. Maurine wrote poetry for some fifty plus years before ill health took away her capacity to write. She died in March, 1996, without achieving her one great wish to see her poetry published in one complete book. This book is the fulfillment of that dream. Rather than use Housewife Harmony as a title, I have chosen to call the book "From the Heart of a Prairie Farm Wife" because Mom truly wrote from the heart. The following pages will unveil the ability Maurine had in the stroke of the pen.

What picture of farm life is complete without the woman at its heart? Rising before dawn to start the fire, sitting up long after dark to do her mending, she holds farm and family together. In moving photographs and prose, this book celebrates the life of the farm wife, with its hours of hard work and moments of ineffable sweetness. Pictured at tasks such as feeding chickens or on the tractor; caught in a rare stillness against the endless horizon or in a moment of well-deserved rest: Here is the farm wife as she is and was and will be, at the heart of the American farm, and of the American story.
