Gavin Hamilton Green was well-known to Goderich visitors as the "racy, entertaining and genial proprietor" of Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe. His writings describe the colourful, sometimes wily ways of pioneer history in Colborne Township and Huron County.

Green supplies a large repertoire of witty anecdotes, which together with several illustrations of old-timers and old places, give his book the true atmosphere of the times to which they relate.

The reader is carried from chuckles to tears as events unfold in his witty saga in which he alternates from participant to observer. His "odd expressions and pawky whimsies" are an absolute delight.
