About meI authored the book, "The Pathfinder: A.C. Anderson's Journeys in the West" [Victoria: Heritage House, 2011]. My protagonist's full name was Alexander Caulfield Anderson, and he was the Hudson's Bay Company fur trader who, in the mid-1800's, threaded his way through mountain passes and down rapid-filled rivers in search of a horse-friendly trail through the rugged country that separated Kamloops from Fort Langley, on the lower Fraser River.
Alexander Caulfield Anderson was my great-grandfather, and I wanted to know who he was. It took me ten years to research his story, and I learned things that threatened to destroy the historic and heroic fur trade figure that lived inside my head. There were many occasions when I flinched -- but I think those flinches transformed Anderson into a man, with quirks and flaws and character and kindness and a poetic courtesy -- an extraordinary human being.

About my libraryI own a large library of books, almost entirely fur trade and British Columbia or Pacific Northwest History.
