She describes travelling by river and by horse to McBride; fishing for trout in the streams; Bridal Creek; picking raspberries; a general description of the landscape; her memories of McBride and experiences as a child; the road between McBride and Prince George, offered as an election promise in 1916, when women were allowed to vote; Pat Burns Landing; steamships and supplies; the building of the bridge; her grandchildren are the fifth generation of their family, Monroe, to farm the same land; a fire on the property. TRACK 2: Mrs. Frye continues by discussing the naming of the Mountain View district; a story about shooting a bear who was after their sheep; another story about a grouse chase where her brother played a trick on her; baking bread and using it as bait to catch a bear (unsuccessfully); and a description of her mother's character.
