Bush Life in the Ottawa Valley.
Bush Life in the Ottawa Valley.. Not to be confused with the similar "Roughing it in the bush" by Susannah Moodie. This is the joyful reminiscences of a settler who came early to the Ottawa valley and experienced, first hand, the hardship and privation, associated with extracting a living from the untamed Canadian bush. Except that there is an underlying note of nostalgia and perhaps a hint of sorrow that those heady days have departed, never again to be experienced. A surprising and intimate glimpse into a long gone life style.
