Welcome to my newest book, YesterCanada: Historical Tales of Mystery and Adventure. Published by Borealis Press, it presents 30 historical tales spanning this great land and the centuries from the 1200s to the 1900s.
Here are a few of the mysteries you'll find in its pages: Where in the icy Arctic is the lost Vancouver-based ship Baychimo? Who rang the chapel bell in Tadoussac, Quebec one foggy April night in 1782? Why did a Minnesota farmer abandon his farm, walk to Saskatchewan, and build an ocean-going ship far from any ocean?
In YesterCanada you'll also meet adventurers like Ontario's daring Lady Agnes, pious Nova Scotia pioneers, gold-seekers of Alberta, and the Manitoba Cree chief who gave his life for the woman he loved.
YesterCanada is a 248-page paperback including 30 illustrations and a bibliography, ISBN 978-0-88887-650-8, $19.95. Ask for it in a bookstore or library. Or order online from
