    From:Walter Vanast

    Document Overview:
    The diaries of Sadie Stringer, including her 1896 journey from Ontario to Fort McPherson, the Mackenzie Delta, and Herschel Island, her life at McPherson from 1896-97, at Herschel Island from 1897-1901, and home in Ontario the next year. Sadie had trained as a stenographer (and worked as such in New York) and as a nurse, which gave her skills she often used in the North. She taught school to Inuit and whalers at Herschel Island, managed her household, took an active part in mission work, and hosted numerous Inuit (who were fed at the mission when they arrived at the island with their furs, as the mission was also a trade post). She engaged several Inuit women as helpers with her chores and in looking after her young children (the first born in 1897, the second two years later), which caused jealousy and almost led to violence. On a number of occasions, sometimes for months on end, she handled many functions, including the Sunday services, when her husband was ill. When he was away on long journeys she ran the mission and fur trade post at Herschel Island with the help of her bachelor uncle Will Young, who had come to the North with her.

  • Manor Houses of Great Britain - Volume One
    Manor Houses of Great Britain - Volume One

    $8.55

    Document Overview:
    Little evidence of everyday life in Britain during the Middle Ages has survived, with the exception of the manor house. Today there are perhaps some 300 examples of this type of late medieval country house throughout the country, many of which have evolved from the ancient ‘aisled hall’. The selection of 30 properties contained in this volume have been well preserved, and many will be familiar even if not previously considered a ‘manor house’ in the strictest sense. Each article comprises a colour photograph, an historical overview, and an information panel containing opening times, grid reference, address, telephone number, and web site details (where applicable) NB - The 'Adobe Reader' version of this title is not suitable for use with 'Adobe Reader for PalmOS'.

The county can now boast two thousand years of living history, with at least some fragment surviving from every period of its development. This book explores 30 of West Kent's Historic monuments, some well known, others not, but all open to the public at certain times throughout the year.
