"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 boy 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, a boy and a wrestling bear and more.
"Readers with an interest in Canadian history, a taste for adventure and a love of books set in the great outdoors, will find Gallaher's series a delightful way to encounter the epic elements of our past." Prairie Fire Review of Books
"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)
