The Trethewey family immigrated from England in the mid-1800s. They were a hardy, adventurous lot, and the men were experts in logging, mining, grist-milling, and running sawmills, including the one once located at Mill Lake in Abbotsford. The Trethewey women -- mothers, sisters and wives -- were instrumental in the family's success, but until now have received little to no acknowledgement. Published by the Trethewey House Heritage Museum, Julia Rohan's book seeks to redress that injustice.
