Seven Crested Cranes

Roger St. Vincent produced two versions of “Seven Crested Cranes”. The first is based on that originally published by the Canadian Immigration Historical Society twenty years ago and re-released for the fortieth  anniversary of the Ugandan movement in 2012. The second version, which is on the Carleton University Uganda Archive web site, was published by Roger in 2012. It is based on a more profusely illustrated version that appeared as Chapter 10 of his self-published autobiography “A Fortunate Life”. The texts of the two versions have minor variations.
