Masters book available again

Despite her advancing years, it seems there’s no stopping that Dame, Ruth Masters.

Despite her advancing years, it seems there’s no stopping that Dame, Ruth Masters.

In light of the recent premier of Eco Warriors, a film made by Jennifer Pickford of Courtenay, plus the award of Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal given to Ruth for her lifetime contribution to the community, the book about her life — Us Dames Have Come A Long Way — is now back in print.

Renowned Storyteller, Hazel Lennox, interviewed Ruth some years ago and “Us Dames…” was the result, when all was revealed about Ruth’s past.

“Ruth and I had loads of fun putting the book together, and then touring local communities with it,” says Lennox. “We ran out of copies quite a while ago, but due to Ruth’s latest notoriety, I’ve been encouraged to have a second run, which I did.”

The indomitable duo will be present at Laughing Oyster bookshop on Fifth Avenue in Courtenay to sign copies of Us Dames Have Come A Long Way at 2 p.m. on Nov. 28.

The book received very positive reviews and has proved a popular read.

“I’m flattered that people are so interested,” said Ruth, before adding, “Of course, I feel like a prize heifer, though!”

Meet the Dame Herself before Us Dames is once more no longer available.
