I am Nancy Marguerite Anderson, author of The Pathfinder: A.C. Anderson's Journeys in the West
[Victoria: Heritage House, 2011]
Alexander Caulfield Anderson was my great grandfather, and I wanted to know who he was.
As I wrote his story, I learned things that threatened to destroy the historic and heroic fur trade figure that lived inside my head.
But those flinches transformed Anderson into a man, with quirks and flaws and character and a poetic courtesy -- an extraordinary human being.
