1901. The book begins: The winter had broken early and the Scotch River was running ice-free and full from bank to bank. There was still snow in the woods, and with good sleighing and open rivers every day was golden to the lumbermen who had stuff to get down to the big water. A day gained now might save weeks at a chute farther down, where the rafts would crowd one another and strive for right of way. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.

Review: The Man from Glengarry

User Review  - Jules - Goodreads

A great book, it was really enjoyable! A few times it slowed down in pace and then all of a sudden BAM, you just read 80 pages without taking a breath. A really fun read. Read full review

Review: The Man from Glengarry

User Review  - Jane Campbell - Goodreads

Very interesting story of the Ontario/Quebec - Protestant/R.Catholic issues of the 20's in Canada. Explains much of the mutual antagonisms and distrust on both sides. Writing is dated, but revealing for the time period. Read full review
