Shadow Song
Publisher : Five Rivers Chapmanry
Description
Based upon a true tragedy that occurred in the village of Hornings Mills, Ontario, Canada, Shadow Song is set amid the economic ruin that occurred to so many émigrés and British pensioned officers of the 1830s. It is full of psychological and cultural contrasts of two cultures at odds with one another, and an intimate familiarity with the geography of the novel, from the immigrants'' miserable landing stage at Grosse Isle into the dark reaches of Lake Superior''s North Shore.


The Story Behind This Book
When researching my book on the Niagara Escarpment (Touring the Giant's Rib: A Guide to the Niagara Escarpment) I came across an account of four children who went missing in the Melancthon Swamp in the early 1830s. It was a huge tragedy for the emerging hamlet of Hornings Mills, something from which the inhabitants never recovered, and the hook upon which I hung my story.
