Well.... the trip to Pukaskwa Park was terrific. We rode down to the Depot on the "Wildshore" under the most able care of Captain Brian.

We checked out the old cabin.

 Also--Ward found Gus' cave with beaver board intact.

Are there ghosts?

There was the boom log...

and the Red Chairs

Getting ready for the book signing the next day was a lot of fun too.

Thanks to everyone who helped and attended . The whole weekend was such a memorable part of this 2016 summer.  

And the book continues to travel too.It even made it to Mexico....

Getting ready for a 2016 trip to the Puckasaw Depot

I recently finished your fine book. Beautifully written, and immensely interesting! Thank you so much for sending it to us. I thoroughly enjoy Canadian history, and your engrossing writing certainly brings the Depot to life.

 I very much enjoyed reading The Puckasaw Diaries, my favourite Christmas present this year. It’s the first book I’ve read a second time immediately upon finishing. Thanks for all your efforts in getting this history recorded for others to enjoy.Rich Greenwood    Sault Ste Marie, Ontario

 Wow Ruth what a book. I’ve read it once but there is so much to take in that I can see there will be quite a few repeat reads.Bridget Roberts     Wiltshire, England

 I have started reading and am enjoying it. I'm sure as soon as I get them cataloged they will be read by many of our patrons. It is great when we get some new local history in our libraryJan Ramage       White River Public Library
