Called to Be a Soldier
This book tells the experiences of conscientious objectors in Canada during World War II. It details their lives in the camps where they performed alternative service instead of joining the army. Most of the boys were from Ontario, and they first served at the Montreal River Camp, clearing land for the Trans-Canada Highway. Later some were transferred to forestry camps in British Columbia to fight forest fires and plant trees. Copies of letters to and from government officials are included, as well as some letters from church leaders. Although the practices of the different faiths vary from what we practice, this book gives a good picture of what CO camp life was like. 519 pages; paperback; Vineyard Publications.
In My Father’s House
This is the story of the early life of Corrie Ten Boom, before World War II and her work with sheltering Jews. Corrie was a timid girl when young. She grew up in a busy household with several siblings, a number of aunts, and her devoted father and mother. As she got older she reached out to others, helping form girls’ camps for activities and learning about the Lord. Later still, her family took in children who needed a home. Fast paced and alternately humorous and sobering, it makes for interesting reading. 197 pages; paperback; Lighthouse Trails Publishing.

Plain Folks in CPS Camps
