An Unfailing Faith will likely become the primary reference work on the development of the dairy industry in Saskatchewan. Considering its several hundred references and its comprehensive outline, it is unlikely that there exists or will appear a publication that covers the historical developments of the dairy industry so completely. The book contains a lot of local color, including pioneer living conditions on the prairies and early histories of cities, towns, attitudes, and operations of community leaders. Descendants of pioneer families will find much to supplement their memories and family histories, and readers of general Western lore will be pleased to discover that the history of an agricultural industry provides enjoyable reading.
