Home remedies and other echoes of the Canadian past. After the success of 'Harness in the Parlour', Mrs Armstrong once again reaches into her own memories and those of her family and friends to tell us about how our grandparents and great-grandparents coped with illness and accidents, how they fought bad luck with superstitious rituals, how they reacted to the new-fangled invention called the telephone, how the youngsters dreamed up mischievous pranks to play on their elders. This is a delightfully informal book, nostalgic and often wryly funny. It was written by a woman who respects the past and who knows the past, from the days of the first settlements right ups to the Depression years.
