I'm preparing for my first road trip of the year, a three day trip in and around Brantford, photographing for Squire Davis and the Crazy River, an historical novel by S. Minsos which we (Spotted Cow Press) will be publishing this fall.
I'm Canadian: I studied Canadian history in school: and yet I know very little about the history of Ontario in the mid-1800s. I've learned a lot from this novel about that history, and will learn more this coming week.
One of the our reviewers wrote: "Canadians have willful blind spots. I wonder whether we are ready to read about Ruthven and the Grand River Navigation Company boondoggle. That being said, what a story!"
I'll be writing blog entries on this trip, including photographs and more details about the book.
