Like many Nova Scotians born during the War years, Russell Elliott's coming of age reflects a great shift in the Canadian context - from a rural, agricultural-based society toward a modern, urban society. In this memoir, Elliott revisits his youth in New Ross, Nova Scotia, exploring the physical and social environment that was his introduction to the world.
