The prints of Norrie farm boots were deep in Nova Scotian soil by the late nineteenth century. J.P Norrie's seven-league mukluks led off to the muskeg and gold-bearing rocks of Quebec. Nowadays, Norrie boots leave their marks all over the globe.
Glittering Gold is a book of Norrie family tales and traditions. It is a story of how one Norrie honoured his family's traditions and added vastly to its store of tales as he strode across this country. And Glittering Gold is a book for the continuing family of Norries to share with all Canadians who want to hear the tales of our heritage.
Glittering Gold presents Norrie voices, and when Norries get together they all talk at once. When Glittering Gold was launched in Toronto at the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame, the din was wonderful.
So don't expect scholarly. Don't expect "Correct." Nobody ever intended that. Expect Canadiana to remember.
