Tis a Wonderful Time to Be Alive is Winston Oldford's personal account of growing up in Burnside, Bonavista Bay, in the 1940s and 1950s. The tiny community underwent a baptism by fire-literally-in the early twentieth century. Following a devastating forest fire in the area in 1912, the settlements of Squid Tickle and Holletts Cove became known, collectively, as Burnside. Today, with a population close to 200, it is one of seven communities on the Eastport Peninsula. This book takes a look at the history of Burnside, as well as the day-to-day lives of those who have lived in the community over the last two centuries. Winston Oldford takes the reader on a guided tour of his hometown and the cultural foundations upon which Burnside was built.
