The book contains a series of fifty stories (some of which have been previously published in the Peterborough Examiner) that range widely across time periods, occupations, and circumstances. Each story defines the uniqueness and special qualities of the people who lived and worked in Peterborough. From the early settlement of the Cumberland settlers of 1818, to the arts of the 19th century in the tale of Pauline Johnson at the Bradburn Opera, to sports through John Corkery’s Lacrosse and the commercial ventures of Robert Fair, one will be intrigued by the scope of this book.
