about

"Ordinary people and ordinary events often create extraordinary stories." Commenting on the success of his first book, In Search of Yesterday, Canadian author David Turner offers his audience a second helping of stories, written in the same descriptive and colourful style of warmth, nostalgia, and humour that distinguished his previous effort. Yesterday: The Search Continues expands on the author's personal recollections, as well as those handed down through generations, thoughtful character studies depicting life in both the rural and urban environment of southern Ontario and that of the world around them. Allow David to guide you on a journey down memory lane, encompassing a wide range of nostalgia ... horse-drawn streetcars and gas-fired streetlamps, steam threshers and steam whistles, single furrow plows and one room schools; bicycles, bomb shelters, beetles and barns, black and white TV, radios and Model T's; 78s, V-8s, falling in love, pickups and party lines, old dogs and chickens; country lanes and gravel roads, growing up and growing old. "David has a keen observer's eye, a strong sense of history and a deep respect for the past." So writes Gary Heffner, editor of Legacy Quarterly, of which David is a frequent contributor. Distant, local, and current events; relatives, neighbours, family, and friends; at first glance, routine personalities and endeavours ... until treated to the author's warmhearted and affectionate style of storytelling. Simcoe County was the Turner family home for many years before they relocated to Perth County in 1957, where David resided 57 years. In 2014, David and his wife Mary retired to Huron County.
