Local Book: Mustard Plasters and Handcars - Through the Eyes of a Red Cross Out Post Nurse by Gertrude LeRoy Miller

Posted to Books on Jan 1, 2010
Book cover: Mustard Plasters and Handcars by Gertrude LeRoy Miller

Wilberforce, in 1922, became home to the first Red Cross Outpost Hospital in Ontario. It was here in this somewhat isolated northern rural village in the Haliburton Highlands, only a short distance from southeastern Algonquin Park, that Gertrude Leroy, newly graduated as a nurse and with a certificate in public health nursing, began her career.
   
This is Gertrude’s story, her trials and tribulations, her joys and her successes in her 24-hour-a-day, seven-days-a-week role. This is also the story of a unique community of people, who, though faced with the realities of economic hardships during the Depression years, emerge strengthened by the sense of fellowship and generosity.

Through the eyes of this Red Cross Outpost nurse comes a lovely nostalgic look at our days of yesteryear: the one-room schools and railways whose schedules respond to the needs of people.

Available for loan from the Haliburton County Public Library or for purchase from the Wilberforce Red Cross Outpost & Historic House.

Local Book: Cry Wild by R.D. Lawrence

Posted to Books on Nov 1, 2009
Book cover: Book: Cry Wild by R.D. Lawrence

A remarkable saga of a family of timber wolves that roam the untamed wilderness of North America’s forestland. Seen through the eyes of Silverfeet, as the young pup grows to maturity, the wolf family, animals and the roaring inferno of a forest fire that brings about Silverfeet’s fateful encounter with man.
   
The tale of the mad wolf and the trapper named Morgan grew into legend that would live for years, its untruths embellished by the fear that man has felt for the wolf science time began.

CRY WILD is a literary triumph that evokes a genuine love for all living creatures, and clearly proclaims that one of them, the wolf, is more sinned against than sinner.

Available for loan from the Haliburton County Public Library and is available for viewing at R.D. Lawrence Place in Minden.
