Lavender "Deeno" Longstaff


Lavender "Deeno" Longstaff was my mother.
She was born, 1924, in England and moved to Canada
in the late 1940's.
This is her story of taking the train across the huge width
of Canada and then, her life in a log cabin in the interior
of British Columbia.

She is from a family of writers and her observations
are keen, intriguing and fun to read.

In the near future, 'The Land is Bright' will be published in print.
Thank you for reading,
Timothy Birmingham
