Florence Bell Ore
Florence Bell Ore tells her life story as she remembers it while growing up on the windswept prairies of Alberta, Canada during the dustbowl and the Great Depression.
As the niece of an Anglican missionary on the Blackfoot reserve, Florence had to bridge three cultures that of her English heritage, her
Indian neighbors, and her Canadian school- mates in the town of Gleichen.
She later married an American and moved across the border to Montana where she raised her family. She wrote poetry, essays and her book, hosted a writers group, and worked as an editor for Raven Publishing, Inc. from her home in Pony, Montana. She passed away on October 17, 2014.

The Road Between
by Florence Bell Ore
As a child living on the Alberta prairies during the 1930s and 1940s, Florence Bell traveled between the influence of three cultures: English morals and manners of her family working as missionaries on the Blackfoot Reserve, her Indian neighbors emerging from their tribal past, and the Canadian people striving for independence. Dust, the Great Depression, and World War II added other dimensions.
