Please join us for the official launch of Life on the Great Northern Peninsula by Adrian Payne on Tuesday, July 25, at 6:30 pm at the Cow Head Public Library (119 Main Street, Cow Head).
The book will be available for purchase. The author will speak at the beginning of the event and then sign copies. There will be light refreshments.
Life on the Great Northern Peninsula begins in 1940, with Adrian Payne’s early childhood in Cow Head and Parson’s Pond, and then Hawke’s Bay, where his family lived in a company home while his father worked for Bowater’s Pulp and Paper Company. It has been said that a person’s real education begins after school, and rightly so. The reader follows Adrian through his early years of hard work and rich rewards in the lumber woods, hunting moose in the wild north, and adventures on the Long Range Mountains. Told anecdotally, this charming memoir illustrates a life well-lived on the Great Northern Peninsula, where women and men worked hard from season to season and family always came first.
