This leading Canadian novelist and essayist is buried in the southwest corner of the cemetery at Rapid City. For seventeen years Grove taught at various high schools in south-central Manitoba, moving to Ontario in 1929 where he died at Simcoe. His published works faithfully portray the prairie landscape of Manitoba and the life of its pioneers.
