SIGNED by author to ffep. Soft cover. 149 pp. B&W illustrations and photos in text. Chafing to covers, creasing to joints and rear cover. Very good overall. Porridge and Old Clothes is about a bunch of Scots -- the lowland variety -- who managed to settle west of Brandon, Manitoba, in the early 1880s. Thanks to the discovery of some family diaries and the keen interested of one of their descendants, we have a particularly lively addition to the history of Western Canada.
