Silver Creek The Centre of the World
This book is based on the author's observations and recollections as a youngster growing up in a small community in the Ottawa Valley in the late 1930's and 1940's. It mirrors a bygone way of life of some of our ancestors. The reader is trasported back to a "horse and buggy" era. Few outside influences affected the peoples' traditional way of making a living. They had a healthy respect for the natural environment with which it was necessary to coexist in close harmony. Hard work and values like generosity and cooperation were prized and considered essential.
A 142 page book about a small community between Buckingham and Thurso, south of Mayo, Quebec. Full of facts and stories by Willard Vandine Smith [email@example.com]
