About The Book

A stranger once asked –
“What do you grow in Anderdon Township?”
Without blinking an eye, Paddy replied – 
“Men, Begorai!”

Covering the pioneer era from the creation of the Huron Reserve in 1790 to 1920, these stories tell of neighbourly folks, but also epic adventures, confidence men, notorious villains, and battlefield glory.

Printed in large format, the text contains over 100 images plus genealogical information, newspaper accounts and rare maps.

Included is a map (18 by 24 inches) of Anderdon Township created in 1877 which shows the location and ownership of homesteads.
