Read full description of the books:
Visit the town of Likely, Alberta through the eyes of ten-year-old, Martin Winkle. Most visitors see Likely as nothing more than a sleepy little town. The citizens seem oblivious to the anti-war protests and love-ins thriving across the country. They are content to focus on their 4-H contests and meetings with the Hereford Breeders' Club. As The Miss Hereford Stories unfolds Martin introduces readers to his community, where the old ways are being threatened by the new, fathers and sons are fighting and married lovers are rediscovering one another. Readers will begin to see the magic of Likely and realize it really is more than a sleepy little town.
