The old eyeball is getting better, so I thought I’d better update everyone on the book, “This Land, These Waters”. I’m very proud and happy with this book. It has taken me about four years to complete because it involved a lot of hours of conversations with my mom. The book tells the story of how my family on my mom’s side came to live in Red Lake, Ontario, Canada, my little home town.
I have told it through stories and poetry as is my way and I think it will be interesting to everyone and maybe even a little bit inspiring. My family is culturally diverse and diverse in many other ways. This is good for writing material. We have had a lot of tragedy and triumph. My mother is the last of her immediate family who is living. She had six brothers and was the only girl.
The book launch was scheduled for June 7th, but because my eyeball quit working on me and I had to leave town to see a specialist, it was cancelled. It was also to be a little family reunion because writing the book has helped to reunite some of us, even if it’s just through facebook. So I am working on a book signing day for the following week.
This is the story of the Cameron family. You can find it as an e-book and it is sold on Amazon or through me. I’ll share some pics with you here.
