120 pages1 hour


"The author has imbued this book with magic charms, making it an adventuresome voyage through a sometimes entertaining, sometimes alarming, always fascinating, unfamiliar lost world, almost too fantastic to be real, and peopled with as many interesting characters as Alice in Wonderland." ~ Bob Anthony, author of Novus Mirabilis

"This book was born from the stories my father told me and my adventure of growing up in a freer time. I realized from a young age how fortunate I had been to have exposure to such a varied experience and I wanted my children to know these people when my dad and I were gone. Cast your memory back and enjoy." ~ Janet Clarkson

Janet Clarkson (nee Hall) was born, according to one of her dad's songs, "at home one day when they were all away." The year was 1943. She attended a one-room school where there were at the best of times 13 kids. Janet married Pete Clarkson and they have raised two children, been a part of six grandchildren's lives, and are now enjoying three great-grandchildren. Always an entrepreneur, in 1960, she and Pete opened Bay Side Boutique & Art Gallery which is still operating. Six years ago, Janet entered local politics and is currently the Mayor of Trent Lakes. She loves travel, her family and life in general.
