Welcome to my website!

My website is designed to help you explore Canada, and learn something of its rich and fascinating history.

In the sidebar Discovering Canada you will find Trip Reports and Routes in Detail of five major road trips that my wife and I made which covered Canada coast-to-coast — with more than just a few detours — plus a return trip across the northern US. We made these trips in our Canadian Roadtrek Popular-190 camper van. At 6m (19 feet) it is small enough to go on the “roads-less-travelled, which is our preference.

During these and other trips we visited hundreds of historic and archaeological sites, as well as museums large and small. My book Five Ages of Canada: A History From Our First Peoples to Confederation is mostly based on what I learned at these sites. I am not an academic historian; I just like history, so my approach is more personal.

This book is the road trip of discovery across Canada that you’ve always wanted to take, with Graham along as your knowledgeable guide. A personal, intimate look at Canada, unabashed, meticulously informed – an insightful read as we turn 150.
