Randy Richmond is an Orillia journalist. He wandered from job to job for several years after graduating from Carleton University. When he reached Orillia, he knew he was home. So he got married, bought a house, had a daughter, and started to listen to the citys stories.
The Orillia Spirit
The Orillia Spirit tells the history of the city through the stories of its people, who insisted on making their lives and their community alive with significance.
"How locally-generated power changed our community from a sleepy lumber village to a thriving industrial centre is an engrossing read--as entertaining as it is enlightening--in Randy Richmond's The Orillia Spirit."
