Book Description:
This book relates "somewhat random sketches of life in the early settlements and country districts of Upper Canada" , as well as a bit of history of the Conant family from its beginnings in England, to their emigration to what was to become Oshawa, Ontario in 1792. This book is especially interesting to the reader since it speaks a lot of the area near which she resides. - Summary by TriciaG
