it’s a short walk to the bottom”
Mudtown was a working-class neighbourhood tightly wedged between once busy docks, factories and the escarpment along the east shore of Owen Sound Bay. It was regularly inundated with mud during spring rains. Beyond Mudtown, Rob Rolfe’s third collection of poetry with Quattro Books, is an imagined visit into past and present-day Mudtown, the Saugeen (Bruce) Peninsula and places beyond.
