About this product
- DescriptionVictorian Ontario included people from all walks of life from homeless beggars to wealthy gentry. In Much To Be Done we glimpse how life was lived in 19th-century Ontario, t only in the grand mansions, but also in the farm houses and streets where our ancestors lived.This publication could be your great-grandmother's story, following the cycle of life from courtship to childbirth to celebration and death. Diaries, with some contributions from letters, newspapers and reminiscences, provide a fresh and contemporary viewpoint. Much To Be Done promotes a historical understanding which links people of today with the Ontario of the past.
- Author BiographyHaving come to Canada from the north of England in 1966, Frances Hoffman lives in a log house on the banks of the Grand River in the heart of Mennonite country near Waterloo, Ontario. It was while entertaining Old Order Mennonite neighbors, and in coming to appreciate the old world quality that pervades much of their lives, that the idea of writing Much To Be Done was conceived.
