A restless young man, he emigrated to British Columbia where he worked on the province's new parliament buildings. His life's path saw him as boat builder, homesteader, garage owner, justice of the peace - a man of diverse talents and skills. It was his boat building expertise which got Olive to the Klondyke, constructing boats for the Bennett Lake & Klondyke Navigation Company. while completing three boats, his adventures and those related to him by the gold field bound stampeders travelling on Yukon River steamboats became the material for this fascinating memoir and historical record which he assembled in his later life.
