Born in 1910 in Montana, Tessie Gillis moved with her husband Joe to Rear Glencoe in Inverness County in the 1950s to live the hard, satisfying life of rural Cape Breton. Illness finally gave her the opportunity to write, and her friend and editor Evelyn Garbary helped her bloom into one of Cape Breton's finest writers.
