Defending Our Home: Loyalist Families of Dundas County and the Battle of Crysler's Farm by Ronald L. Doering
Guest review by Joe Racine!
First of all, a necessary background. I am from Dundas County and have known the author, and his family, since we were kids. His brother, Jake, was a best friend and Ron, 5 years older, was the first Head Boy of North Dundas District School. Five years later he was my teacher advisor when I had the same role. Ron then attended law school.

the pot called the kettle black!
Finally, the protagonist of the book is the great-great-grandfather of Ron's mother (AKM), a very fine lady– to whom the book is dedicated.
