The story of Philemon Wright, pioneer of the first settlement in Canada's National Capital, written by his 4x great-grandson. The story of Philemon’s settlement, carved out of the wilderness of Lower Canada in 1800, is truly emblematic of the story of Canada’s early development. His dreams, his successes and his failures are captured in this intimate snapshot of the man and his family.
