Covered BridgeBook - 1990
In the latest comic novel by Canada's celebrated author Brian Doyle, Hubbo O'Driscoll, the enterprising hero of Easy Avenue, is learning to enjoy the pleasures of country life. But when the local covered bridge, home to a wayward ghost and her lovelorn postman, is threatened by development, Hubbo must devise a strategy to save it. Pitted against the forces of "progress" represented by builders Ovide Proulx and his wife, Prootoo, Hubbo and his inimitable dog, Nerves, search for a way to reconcile the old and the new. At the last minute, the unexpected help of Foolish Father Foley from Farrelton and a crazy goat ensures that Mushrat Creek continues to be a haven for all who love the past as well as the present.
