Fading History Vol. 2, has 11 chapters covering a wide range of stories of historical interest.

The first chapter looks at the Grand Duchess of Russia’s life in Canada, including the years she lived on Camilla Road in Cooksville. When she first arrived in Canada, she settled on a farm in Campbellville and in an amazing coincidence that brought two European families of note together in a remote farming community in Canada, she sold her Campbellville farm to Wolfgang Von Richthofen, the cousin of WWI German flying ace, the Red Baron. (And that’s just the first chapter!)
