Howard writes straightforwardly about wrestling in the farming and factory towns of the Ottawa Valley and in the mining and bush towns of Northern Ontario. In spite of his demurrals, it really is a crash course in the history and culture of the game.
This was also helpful for me in researching my father's wrestling history. (Wild Bill Zim, aka Wild Bill Zummo, aka Zimovich, Zimovitch, and others.)
