342 pages including index and many black and white photographs. "The years between 1822 and 1967 saw Canadian history in the making, not only in large cities and populated areas, but also in small rural communities such as Douro in Peterborough County. Herein are chronicled facts of historical importance in the area. There are also glimpses into the lives of many who served the township well during the generations. Some of these were very colourful folk indeed. Several of Canada's best known writers were domiciled here. Pioneer days in Upper Canada are recalled from old records, diaries and family lore.... Those who get to know Douro in these pages will appreciate how proud its natives are of their township and why many visitors return here year after year. Here is law observance and a history of good interfaith and interracial relations which could be a model for all Canada" - from dust jacket.
