Flyback Fridays - Molly Ronayne 2003 - excerpt 1

This season we will bring you stories and videos from Tea & Tales and our video archives over the last decade that highlight Pioneer life and the resiliency of early settlers and First Nations.  We will also share videos and stories that show how local residents have responded to emergencies and challenges in the past, illustrating the power of community ties through all kinds of difficulties – yesterday and today.

This week we feature an excerpt from an interview with an excerpt from an interview with Mary (Molly) Ronayne in 2003.   In this excerpt Molly explains how she ended up in Pemberton, how she met Clifford, the challenges she faced living off the land and getting electricity.  Molly was a co-author of the book Pemberton: History of a Settlement along with Frances Decker and Margaret Fougberg.  Watch it here.
