Shepherd was ready to tackle anything; a house full of rebellious teeangers, the “counter-culture”, “the hippie” days, the “October Crisis”, and the first Quebec Referendum. This volume of personal letters chronicles both the wonderful and sometimes troubling times of those years and sweeps us along on a wave of nostalgia and insight; leaving us to wonder at the end of each letter: what happens next?”.
