Pull up a Chair
Trafford Publishing, 26 ago 2004
This is a book of memories. Sitting at the kitchen table, seven children of different families of early settlers recount stories of growing up during the opening quarter of the last century. They all lived in or near the small city of Armstrong, which is surrounded by the rural municipality of Spallumcheen, in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. Six of them live here still. Go, West, young men, and young women too! Their parents came from eastern Canada, the United States, and Britain, each with a varied and fascinating past. They told these stories to their children. They were looking for adventure, love, success, a place of their own. Some achieved their desire by hard work, luck, perseverance, and ingenuity, and their children shared the experience. Others were overcome by circumstances and their children shared that too. Together parents and children helped to build the community of Armstrong Spallumcheen. These stories tell a part of how it happened.
