The Lovely and the Wild.

By Lawrence, Louise de Kiriline.

Toronto: McGraw Hill, 1968. For over thirty years Mrs. Lawrence has lived among the balsam fir and black spruce forest of Ontario's Pimisi Bay region. At first as a hobby, then as a vocation - but always guided by her great love and deep sympathy for all living things - she made herself into a wide-visioned and catholic naturalist. Gradually her interests became focused on Canada's abundant birdlife and she began to specialize in ornithology. The Lovely and the Wild is thus notable not only for the meticulous precision of Mrs. Lawrence's descriptions of feeding, flight, nesting and migration habits of the regions' birds, but also for her quietly lyrical reference for life in all its forms and processes.". $22.50. 1st Can Ed.

My Villages of Mississauga

By Weeks, Verna Mae

Mississauga, ON: Verna Mae Weeks, 1995. ".an account of people, places and events as I recall them during the unforgettable years between World War I and World War II, when I lived in the southern part of Peel County which later became the City of Mississauga. Anything further removed from the little villages of Peel County, fifty or sixty years ago, and the new City of Mississauga would be difficult to imagine. The years of the 1920s were happy years for us; but the Great Depression years of the 1930s were ones that most people who lived through them would rather forget. It seems to me that the story should be told and accepted as part of our real history and, as such, written in the first person by someone who lived through those days. New pictures, not published before, have been freely given by people who lived in the region, making this a more valuable book. Many of the places and buildings which are 'of historical interest' today were everyday places and houses to us, with everyday people living and working in them. For example: the Wilcox Inn, at Port Credit, was to us just Wilcox's, a house past which we went to go swimming in the Credit River, and Clarke Memorial Hall was where we went to watch cowboys in the old silent moveis. I have painted a word picture of life as it was lived then; beyond that, I have put flesh and bones back into the old buildings, moved real people back into their homes, schools and businesses, and shown you familiar nooks and byways they knew." 286p.
