Waterloo You Never Knew (eBook)
Life On The Margins
de Joanna Rickert-Hall
Sobre o livro
The history you dont know is the most fascinating of all.
In many ways, Waterloo, Ontario is a typical small Canadian community, with a history of great accomplishments by its founding fathers and their successors. But, as Joanna Rickert-Hall shows, there are also controversial tales, ones that are not often shared especially with outsiders. Stories of the marginalized, the famous, the infamous, the weird, and the wonderful real people who, by choice or by design, lived on the margins of mainstream existence.
Meet the ex-slaves and cholera victims, the grave digging doctor, the séance-loving politician, the rumrunner, and the sorcery-practising healer. Theres even a crystal skull and a nurse-turned-psychic.
There are many more stories here than in the official history, and some are very strange tales indeed. Come inside. This isWaterloo You Never Knew, revealed.
