Lynne Stonier-Newman interview
One of my recent reads was Peter O’Reilly: The Rise of a Reluctant Immigrant by Lynne Stonier-Newman. I enjoyed the book so much that we asked Lynne for an interview. This book is a super example of local history coming alive through a book. Lynne Stonier-Newman makes her home in British Columbia and is devoted to the history of this province. I’m an immigrant to British Columbia too – except that it’s a lot easier to do it in 2005 then it was 1859. I don’t have to ride a horse for hundreds of miles or travel by canoe or hole up for the winter or wait weeks for someone to write to me with important news.
