The story traces the Attridges from their earliest beginnings to the present, examining the circumstances in Ireland which caused them to leave, their arrival first in Quebec and later in Rochester, and their eventual settlement in Ontario. The central figure for the early part of the book is William Attridge Jr., who during the last years of his life, suffered emotionally for the many personal sacrifices which he had made for the welfare of his family. William Jr's. descendants include William R., who became a prosperous farmer in spite of his severe learning disability, John R., the village of Highgate's baseball legend, and longest serving cler/treasurer, and Ernest Frederick, father of the author, who became a Major figure in Canadian Optometry in the '60s, when pivotal changes in that profession took place. The last chapters provide an intimate personal glimpse into the lives of Ernest Frederick and his wife Marge, married for over 64 years, and co-producers of countless films and videos that have been enjoyed by thousands. The book contains appendices of carefully prepared genealogical information on the descendants of all those described in the narrative."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
