The re-printed version of A Barrelful of Memories by Pauline Correia Stonehill, featuring improved graphics and layout, is another precious literary nugget of the Portuguese Heritage Publications’ Pioneer Collection.
The book has already captured the interest and recognition of printed media:
“This book follows the history of early Portuguese families. The writer’s description of the church, the festas, and the dances bring to life the coming of age period in those early-1900s.” Hanford Sentinel
“The friendly spirit and straight-forward style of the book are just right for the subject matter. The book provides quite a well-rounded picture of the people and the time. It will appeal to readers on a number of different levels: as ethnic history, as local history, and as a story.” Lisa Christiansen, California History Center and Foundation
The re-printed version of “A Barrelful of Memories” is now available by mail order or from Amazon.com. What an opportunity to provide friends and family with a “peak” into the life of a Portuguese pioneer family in the early 1900s.
