Currell book 2

Harvey Currell's new Byways and Bylines softcover book recounting his lifetime relationship with print media is his fifth book.

The 380-page book, published by Trafford Publishing, includes 32 of his favourite columns about Ontario communities and their inhabitants living beyond the province's major highways.

As the book's liner notes read: Every week he distilled his adventures into a Trips column—from 1958 to 1971 for the Toronto Telegram and from 1971 to 2007 for the Toronto Sun.

Currell, 87, also writes about his early life and his army years.

His other books are Where The Alders Grow, and The Mimico Story, both about west-end urban history, Thirty Trips Around Ontario and More Trips Around Ontario.

If you can't find Byways and Bylines in your local bookstore, it can be ordered at

BTW: His 1967 book, The Mimico Story, can be read online.
