Books
He was 84 years old, and it was 1925 when Charles Robert Peterkin began to recollect the "incidents and adventures" of his youth in Scotland and Canada. Looking back he remembers a carefree boyhood in Aberdeen, a harrowing crossing on the Berbice in 1853 with his widowed father and seven siblings, and his determination to become independent after their arrival in Toronto.
