description This memoir presents a unique and vivid picture of life by the Dunk River and Bedeque Bay in the 19th century. With telling detail, John Baker Schurman (1805-1891) describes changes he witnessed over many years. Time's progress is marked not by sequential dates, but by new techniques and styles - log cabins become frame houses, trails become roads, calico replaces homespun, oxen yield to horses, frolics give way to village concerts and temperance meetings. Almost as if sensing a social historian's interest, Schurman relates details of everyday life in a chronicle of many decades.
