Product description

Review

"Beryl Young's story of her father fills a very necessary gap in Canadian history. That she does so in such an interesting and thoughtful way is a tribute to her skill as a writer. . . It is enjoyable for personal reading and as an interesting biography, as well as in classrooms as an excellent source of background material. Highly recommended."   — CM Magazine "A warm, candid look back at the life of a man who struggled to secure a place for himself in the new world. Along with the author's gentle and fluid narrative, the tome is seasoned with a smattering of sepia photographs of days gone by."  — Halifax Chronicle Herald
