"The Pathfinder" is available as an e-book

This will be a short post, just to give readers a little information -- I have been taking a break from the blog, perhaps, but have been busy writing and power-pointing the speech I am giving at the Blue Moose Cafe in Hope, B.C., on January 19th, at 7pm.
Books will be available at the site, but those of you who want to purchase a copy sooner can buy it at Hope Visitor Centre and Museum Complex (Destination Hope) at 919 Water Avenue.
This occasion is being put on by the Hope Mountain Group, at -- you can obtain more information on their website.
Once this talk is written and given, I will post much of it on this blog, so that those who listened to it can "re-read," or those not able to come can catch what I said.
There will be some Fort Colvile information here,too, so it will be relevant to the place we are at in the blog.

Immediately following that speech, I will be working on the talk for the Historical Maps Society, in Vancouver, on Alexander Caulfield Anderson's important maps -- fourteen or more of them.
They all have their stories: on the reverse of one of his maps is a drawing of two voyageurs -- one an Iroquois, the second obviously French.
So when that talk is written and given, I will post much of what I said so that all of you will learn something about Anderson's maps.
I certainly don't have all the answers, but I have a lot of family information that I can apply to the maps that I have.

The second thing I have to tell you -- that I just learned today -- is that my book, "The Pathfinder: A.C. Anderson's Journeys in the West," is now available on e-book.
It is available through Chapters, at this link:
I am glad it is available by e-book so quickly because I know so many people use e-books -- you see them everywhere right now!


  1. I'm eager to read this, but the link for the Kobo ebook does not work.
    Also is it available on Amazon's Kindle? I don't have a Kobo and the formats are not interchangeable?

  2. Hi Julie,
    Yes, the book is available for your Kindle: .
    No, Kindle and Kobo are not interchangeable at this time.

  3. Thanks, Neil, for catching this; and thank you, Julie. Hope it loaded fine.
