Before The Road Came
by Florida Town
Sixty years ago, Britannia was the home of the largest copper mine in the British Empire. Several thousand people lived in its two main communities: The Townsite and The Beach. It was a scant 50 miles from Vancouver, but was accessible only boat.
Before The Road Came is a story about life in that isolated mining camp, during WW2.

- Pickles The Parrot: A Humorous Look At Life With An African Grey
on Dec. 29, 2010
I've seen parrots before - they're colourful, they make funny noises, they can imitate sounds and even spout a few words. At least, that's what I thought until I read this book. Pickles, the parrot, isn't just repeating words - he's thinking and being creative. He's stubborn, he's funny, he's demanding, he's intelligent - and he's not your average pet. You'll have a whole new view of parrots when you finish reading these engaging tales - and you might ask yourself, what does Pickles think about his owners? It would be a fair question, because he has an opinion on everything else. A warm and funny book, suitable for all ages.
