From the Scrap-Book

Isn't this a pretty cover for a book? I found a couple of old spiral-bound manila paper scrap-books in my grandmother's things. 

This one is called "River of dreams." 

In one of the books, there was a newspaper clipping that interested me, since it is talking about my great-great grandfather, John McMaster. Born of Scotch parents in Nova Scotia, he settled near Gray's Harbor,Washington and called one of its "earliest pioneers." I found the writing beautiful in this clipping.
