A book of pioneer life in Upper Canada, arranged in the form of a story. The author spent five-sevenths of his life among the pioneer settlers of Western Canada. The incidents in the story are taken from the active life of the pioneers of Western Ontario, among whom the author grew up. A keen observer, the reverend author has been able to produce a faithful record of the hardships, trials and successes of the hardy pioneers of the Niagara district, and all that magnificent country lying between the Niagara River and Lake Huron and Georgia Bay. It is needless to say, therefore, that the book possesses much historic value as a picture of Canadian life in the early days of this western peninsula.

The book is one which will be read with deep interest by those of the old pioneers who remain, and ought to become one of the household treasures of the descendants of those pioneers for many generations.
