Overview

This book takes the reader on an adventure quest through Dr. Bucke's amazing life: from his boyhood in London, Ontario, his near-death experience in the U.S. Rockies, his medical studies at McGill University, his marriage and fatherhood, a personal enlightenment experience and his eventual appointment as Superintendent of the London Asylum located a stone's throw from his boyhood home. But the highlight of the journey is the development of his life-changing love of, and devotion to, the great poet Walt Whitman.
