This book gives great insight into the life of an early little known Canadian pioneer. What people could do with little in the way of education and the drive behind achieving lasting structures in Canada. Interesting comments about bridge building and the Canadian Pacific Railroad. This man was the son of a pioneer family in the Edmonton area and the father of a Canadian embassador to Mexico.
