OXENDEN The Way It Was
by Lynne Porter
The tale of two villages that evolved into one community. 38 vignettes recall the early years of Native occupation, the settlers who displaced the original inhabitants, and the more recent families who enjoy the scenic setting. Winding through time, the stories and original drawings by the author depict buildings past and present. Accounts of hardship and misery, hope and dreams show the profound connections among residents over a century and a half. OXENDEN The Way It Was concludes in the 1950s, as a new era changed everything.
