In his youth, Donald Bliss Grant was the fastest runner, the hardest worker, the boy with the best sense of adventure. But Don didn't have the usual childhood. Given up by his Canadian parents, Don spent the first ten years of his life at the New Brunswick Protestant Orphans' Home. In Under the Cabbage Leaf, author Emilie W. Grant Matheson shares the story of the little orphaned boy who became a man and her father. This biography shares Don's story-from living at the orphanage to his adoption by a farm family to striking out on his own-growing up during the 1930s and 1940s. Under the Cabbage Leaf follows him during various life changes and the discoveries he made as he came of age. Matheson tells about the tales and happenings of an orphan boy who was thrown into adversity, learning the importance of working like a man but having fun like a young boy.
