Enns, W.J. Schweres Schicksal, oder, “Gottes Wege sind nicht unsere Wege” : aus dem Leben des kranken Peter Dyck, gegenwärtig im Carman Hospital, Manitoba / [Heavy Destiny, or, God’s ways are not our ways: The life of the sick Peter Dyck (1911-1970) currently in Carman Hospital, Manitoba.]. [Carman, Manitoba]: [Carman Hospital | Privately Printed for the author], [Crica 1945]. pp. 66. 12mo (18 cm). Illustrated stiff covers with a photograph presumably of the Carman Hospital printed on the front cover. Black and white photographic frontispiece of the author and the subject accompanied with several other portraits and illustrations. Text is entirely German. No detectable flaws; near fine. Rare biography of a Mennonite Manitoban man evidently struck with a disability and his successful efforts to overcome his physical limitations. Notable amongst his efforts at mobility was the utilization of an unusual motorized bed. At time of cataloguing no copies of this title appear amongst the holdings at the University of Manitoba. Stapled Wraps. (#120) $150.00
