The cost of the book is of $25.00, Canadian, plus postage which is about $2.50.
And $25.00 postage included US.. That way I only have to deal with one price and it should work out about the same.

Here is the Review the book got in the local newspaper
The Campbellton Tribune
New book traces city's history
Everybody likes old pictures. Everybody finds family stories fascinating.
Those elements come together in a new book being sold to support the PepinNet community access center. Compiled and written by Irene Doyle, it is obviously a labour of love.
Campbellton's Family Album: A Walk Through Time offers an outstanding collection of historical photographs, including many which have never been published before. Mixed with these images are snippets of Campbellton's history ranging from stories about the town's early mayors (before the place became a city) to details about ferry services and local shipping.
There are pictures and details of early hotels along with the lives of prominent people: the evolution of the Hotel Dieu Hospital along with the histories of a number of stores: odds and ends from early newspaper along with genealogical notes.
This book volume one of what is to be a series, should be required reading for a lot of people. They include students who know all too little about their home town's past, anyone who works in the tourism industry and has the opportunity to explain the area to visitors and local officials who may find, through an understanding of the past, the inspiration and pride that should go into their decisions.
Campbellton's Family Album is available at the access center and other outlets, including the Restigouche Gallery, Campbellton and The Restigouche Regional Museum, Dalhousie, Uni-Village Campbellton, McDavid's Convenience in Tide Head and the Convenience Store in Atholville.
