CA$21.95After the war, Joe and Angelina, my mother, took to frequenting the local legion hall; a house band played there every weekend. It hadn't taken long for the couple's dancing prowess to become known; the other patrons would applaud and move aside when they saw the duo step out onto the floor: the handsome, well-dressed gentleman, and his exquisite, beautiful lady with golden locks that fell to her waist.
How Mother loved it. For a time she would be one in mind and spirit with Joe. For a time she would be his equal.
They wanted passion; I just wanted them to quit fighting. I wanted peace so badly...

CA$14.95Your Nickel's Worth Publishing is pleased to present Bold Experiment, an autobiography written by Matthew S. Anderson (1882 - 1974) - a man recognized by Tommy Douglas as 'a pioneer of social medicine'.
The 80-page book, including photographs, documents and memorabilia, uncovers the little-known history behind an important piece of our Canadian culture, heritage and identity: the story behind how Medicare first came to Saskatchewan.
Since its inception as a province, Saskatchewan has been home to grassroots idealism, to people willing to work hard to make a difference and to those willing to persevere despite the odds. Matthew Anderson believed strongly that Canadians should have protection against the cost of illness. After almost 20 years of dedication and determination to transform the idea into reality, this man, a plain 'dirt farmer' from Bulyea, Saskatchewan, forged and made work North America's first comprehensive, prepaid medical care plan.
Given the interest in the Tommy Douglas story and the history of Medicare, this book provides a timely perspective from one of the early pioneers of health care in North America.

You will be taken through stories of addiction, abuse, domestic violence, and grief.
