    Very detailed,entertaining description of pioneer life in backwoods Ontario in 19th century. Very easy to mentally immerse yourself totally in the story and the lifestyle.

    Both my husband and I just finished this book and give it 5 stars! With all of today's technology and conveniences it find is very difficult to imagine enduring the numerous physical hardships (not to mention the mental and emotional ones) these pioneers went through and this book brings it all sharply into focus for the reader. The added bonus is that it takes place in the area of Muskoka we travel through many times a year never thinking of our ancestors and what it took to make it the recreational and commercial centre it has become. We are very grateful to Thomas Osborne for all his sacrifices and for deciding to write his memoirs. An excellent read!

    I loved the book. It was of particular interest to me as I am familiar with the area and have always wondered how the early settlers survived. Also was pleased to see that mcgregor wrote the intro as I have read him and enjoyed his book as well .
