A town under quarantine during the 1918 flu epidemic must reckon with forces beyond their control in a powerful, sweeping novel of morality in a time of upheaval “An American variation on Albert Camus’ The Plague.”—Chicago Tribune NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY USA TODAY AND CHICAGO TRIBUNE • WINNER OF THE JAMES FENIMORE COOPER PRIZE FOR HISTORICAL FICTION Deep in the mist-shrouded forests of the Pacific Northwest is a small mill town called Commonwealth, conceived as a haven for workers weary of exploitation. For Philip Worthy, the adopted son of the town’s founder, it is a haven in another sense—as the first place in his life he’s had a loving family to call his own. And yet, the ideals that define this outpost are being threatened from all sides. A world war is raging, and with the fear of spies rampant, the loyalty of all Americans is coming under scrutiny. Meanwhile, another shadow has fallen across the region in the form of a deadly virus striking down vast swaths of surrounding communities. When Commonwealth votes to quarantine itself against contagion, guards are posted at the single road leading in and out of town, and Philip Worthy is among them. He will be unlucky enough to be on duty when a cold, hungry, tired—and apparently ill—soldier presents himself at the town’s doorstep begging for sanctuary. The encounter that ensues, and the shots that are fired, will have deafening reverberations throughout Commonwealth, escalating until every human value—love, patriotism, community, family, friendship—not to mention the town’s very survival, is imperiled. Inspired by a little-known historical footnote regarding towns that quarantined themselves during the 1918 epidemic, The Last Town on Earth is a remarkably moving and accomplished debut.

One of the large sliding doors on the south side of the shop was wide open and Henry went through it on a dead run followed closely by the angry ox. Henry ran completely through the shop and out an open door on the garage end. Luckily, the ox was slowed somewhat by its new iron shoes which didn’t provide much traction on the hard concrete floor. But, it knew where Henry went and charged out the door after him. Chapter 3: the Ox Shoe Incident The next morning while Frank was doing the milking, Tex came slowly limping into the barn on three legs. One ear was badly torn and his white fur was caked with dried blood. “Thank God you’re back. We had given you up for dead,” Frank told him. The rest of the milking would have to wait. Chapter 8: Frank Wood’s Muck-land Potatoes What was in that cabinet? What was so valuable or secretive that it needed to always be locked away? Moreover, why didn’t Henry, who knew just about everything about the town, know what was inside? Or, was it a secret and he wasn’t telling? As youthful curiosity will often insist, one day I just had to have an answer. Chapter 12: Town Hall Tales When the spray of water hit the fire and hot bricks, it instantly turned to a huge quantity of steam. The steam immediately changed direction and exploded out the top of the chimney. The steam explosion launched many bricks and one very startled fireman off the roof still clutching the writhing fire hose as if it was an enraged python with a bareback rider. Chapter 17: the Cellar Savers It would have been priceless to see the expression that must have come across the face of the car’s driver as his headlights caught the sight of that sled full of kids passing him and pulling ahead. Chapter 28: The Ripsled Riders

Last of the Small Towns: Short Stories is a charming collection of tales that recount the boyhood years of author Stewart Hyson. From gatherings in the “Indian Graveyard” through unprecedented encounters with baby chicks, here is a sentimental recounting of a range of colourful juvenile adventures experienced by a boy during a time that was poignantly more innocent than today. Hantsport, Nova Scotia, might have been a small place during the 1950s and early 1960s, but it was a veritable hive of activity in certain sectors and for certain segments of its lively population—especially through a kid’s eyes. In this memoir, Hyson invites readers to share his childish perspective of the postwar years on the streets of this little town. With a strong wash of nostalgia that characterizes his memory of his time there, Hyson shares his growing-up experiences of such preoccupations of the time as Sputnik and the widespread introduction of television. Last of the Small Towns: Short Stories is a labour of love that delivers readers back into their own childhoods, so vividly painted are its scenes. It is this energy, this devotion to subject, that are the book’s greatest strength.

This study of a northern Spanish community shows how the residents of Santa MarÁa del Monte have acted together at critical times to ensure the survival of their traditional forms of social organization. The survival of these forms has allowed the villagers, in turn, to weather demographic, political, and economic crises over the centuries. Originally published in 1991.
