excellent show mixing Canadian history & fiction & great acting by all
20 August 1999 | by (Huntsville, Ontario) – See all my reviews

Reflects pre-confederation life in rural Ontario, Canada. I met an actress who was on one episode. She said it was like going back in time. She was a little flustered by a chicken that flew into her during the shooting! I hope it gets aired again soon. I missed the pilot/first episode and sure would like to see it!
