"'Talk About the Valley' is the second book of charming essays by Norman Creighton, whose name is a household word in the Valley. Norman lived on Avon Street in Hansport, where his keen insight into Valley life, his wry sense of humour, and his obvious love of the natural world provided ample material for his weekly CBC radio broadcasts during the 1960s and 70s. Norman was also the creator and writer of the popular noon-hour radio series "The Gillians."

This engaging collection-selected from some six hundred talks aired on CBC's "A.M. Chronicle", "Maritime Magazine," and "Radio Noon" - are about places in the Valley, the people who have lived there, and their way of life. It is beautifully illustrated by Normkan's older brother Alan, himself a poet, writer and accomplished artist." - from the rear cover.
