About this title

Synopsis:

Stories that Missed the Headlines: for more than two decades, readers of The Perth Courier eagerly turned to Don Crawford's weekly column to enjoy another tale of days gone by, and this collection brings together for the first time forty of Don's best.
Life on the Fifth Line of Bathurst during the Great Depression was tough, but with a boy's imagination, a neighbour's helping hand, and a mother's love, almost anything could be achieved. Observant, wistful, humourous, evocative--all these and more describe the writing of Don Crawford, one of the most entertaining storytellers the Ottawa Valley has ever produced.

About the Author:

Don Crawford was born in 1926, the second youngest of four boys and two girls, and was brought up on the family farm on the Fifth Line of Bathurst, west of Perth, Ontario. He left home at sixteen, and for many years wandered the country working at whatever came his way, including a stint in the Canadian Army. A gifted storyteller, these experiences provided the fodder for "Stories that Missed the Headlines," a column that appeared in The Perth Courier for more than two decades. Don eventually returned to Perth-"the prettiest place I've seen in all my travels"--and with his wife Terri, raised four daughters. He passed away in 2000.
