Pioneer Life Among The Loyalists In Upper Canada

Book cover
By: (1860-1947)

What became of the citizens who remained loyal to the Crown when the thirteen British colonies rebelled against England – and won! These Loyalists suffered discrimination and persecution in the nation aborning. Thousands of them left their homes for England; other thousands left for Canada and other British colonies. This book is about the Loyalists who settled in Upper Canada. “To present a picture of the early settlements of Ontario and enter into the daily life of the pioneers is a most fascinating task…. in our search for information concerning the evolution of the homestead, and the customs and peculiarities of the common folk of long ago.“

Subject: An Interesting Perspective
This book is wonderful! Herrington brings a wry wit to this bit of history which matches the best found in modern authors. His 'slang' terms may be outdated (published in 1915?), but he offers very interesting comparisons to "Pioneering" days and his own "modern" one, which straddles our world and theirs almost 50/50. I've only experienced the audiobook, but I listened twice in a row, it's that breezy, funny, and well-read. The narrator has one of the best reading voices I've heard in an audiobook. I'm eager to hear more of his work. If you're on the fence about this one, don't be. Give it a chance, you won't regret it!
