Poplars at Kananaskis, July 2002

The Letters of Sam Kirkpatrick, a great, great uncle of mine and a BC pioneer. Now I know where I get my itchy feet and wandering spirit. Of course, there were also the Portuguese Pirates (dad's side) and the Gypsies (mom's side), but that's a topic for another day.

David Trumble, Canadian pioneer, lived to be at least 111 years old (118 by one great-great-great nephew's account) and had amazing physical strength even as an old man.

An Echo In My Heart - "A box of old letters, discovered in a basement, turned out to contain an absorbing, first hand account of life in Canada, England and on the battlefields of France during the early part of the 20th century. The correspondence between an exceptional couple spans the time of their early courtship, engagement and marriage and their separation when Fred Albright went overseas in World War I."

Milly (Charlton) May - a pioneering spirit in modern Alberta times.

David Hatcher Childress has been dubbed by some a "rogue archeologist." He has written several books on his travels around the world looking for and examining mysterious archeological anomalies. Whenever I am planning a trip, I check out one or more of his books to see what's in the area that I can go have a look for.
