Overview

Excerpt-"Yes, he brought mother here from Glengarry when I was a wee girl, so I am a Glengarry girl and very proud of it. Later he cleared the pine forest off--built the old mill--and later the factory."
"By Jove! How splendid! How magnificently splendid! And this was all forest?"
"Yes, all those hills across there--and on this side too. They floated the smaller logs down the river to the mill in booms."
"Booms? I'm a poor ignorant city bum!"
