The Last Front: A People’s History of Mallorytown & Front of Yonge Township, 2014, is according to the publisher “a peculiar mixture of minute detail and cracker barrel observation combined with straight historical observation and records.

The hardships were unbelievable – a family of 4 was wiped out, another man was tomahawked, parents raised 8, 10, 12 children though eking out a bare existence and more.”

Learn what life in each hamlet was like and what made them unique – read their stories as they capture life as it existed then.
