"If history were taught in the form of stories it would never be forgotten." Rudyard Kipling.
Searchers is a collection of true stories spanning two centuries, of people in search of escape, fame, wealth, glory, self-fulfillment, retribution, redemption, or just plain adventure. There are tales of white slaves, a would-be explorer and the woman who fulfilled his dreams, an old-time bandit, gold seekers, a swindle, a war that wasn't a war, the Mountie who was instrumental in the peaceful settling of the Canadian West, outlaws who terrorized British Columbia's Nicola Valley, a 22-year-old who flew a bomber deep into the heart of Germany during WWII to blow up a dam, the search for a missing aircraft in the Arctic, and more.

MY CDs & SONGBOOK
"Memorable songs...akin to (those) of Stan Rogers and James Keelaghan. ... songs such as The Last Battle (and) Augustus & Catherine...have become as integral a part of the Canadian folk repertoire as Stan Rogers' Northwest Passage and Gordon Lightfoot's Early Morning Rain." Northern Journey (The bible of Canadian folk music)
Please note: CDs are available only via email in mp3 zipped files or by post on a USB memory stick. The songbook, in jpeg files, is available by the same methods.
