About the Author

The city of Orillia, with its dynamic sports and cultural history, was an apt place for David Town to grow up. As an athlete himself, formerly a National Swim Team member and currently a record setting masters swimmer, it is not surprising he chose perhaps Orillia�s greatest athlete as the subject of his book. In tackling track and field, Walter Knox�s sport, David can speak knowledgeably: his older brother was Canadian decathlon champion. Though David is a chiropractor by profession, he has always had a love of Canadian history and has found a wealth of material to write about in his hometown. His first book, Building Character, Stories from Orillia�s Remarkable YMCA, covered a broad range of cultural history. Hot Foot is his biography of one nationally important local hero. When not in the office or writing history, David is a swim coach, YMCA volunteer and avid canoe-tripper. He lives in Orillia with his wife, Leslie and two daughters, Keltie and Jaina.
