First published in 1899, this volume gives an account of early twentieth-century life in Zorra, a township in Oxford County, southwestern Ontario, Canada. It gives details of some of the notable figures and events, furnishing the reader with an authentic account of pioneer life. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in Canadian history, and it would make for a fine addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: “Zorra in the Thirties”, “The Home Life of the Pioneer”, “The Pioneer and the Sabbath”, “Gangin’ Tae the Kirk”, “The Men’s Day”, “An Old Communion Sabbath”, “The Old Communion Sabbath—‘Doing the World’”, “The Catechising”, “Pioneer Politics”, “Zorra and the Rebellion of ‘37”, “Logging Bees and Dancing Sprees”, “Pioneer Songs”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
