Harold Gangloff is a superb storyteller. His story begins on a homestead in Ontario near the Manitoba border. He tells of a wilderness farm, of will o' the wisps, and of childhood adventures that include a moonlit race with a wolf.
When the family moves to British Columbia a new world opens for Harold. From the dangers of skyline logging to a gold dredge in the Yukon to a mine in Mayo where he is seriously injured in an underground explosion, Harold tells his wonderful stories with humour and fascinating detail. His descriptions of working in a saw mill in Ocean Falls and horse logging in Northern Ontario put the reader on the spot. There are gangsters, hoboes, Holocaust survivors, and Doukhobors. He marries, slips to rock bottom with a family to care for, then finds a new life with a new set of adventures in the Cariboo, in 100 Mile House. Read two chapters from The Wanderer.
