About The Book

It was a moonless, damp night in early summer. I was young then and did not understand that Mother was very worried. As she sat sewing by the lantern light she continued to glance at the cabin door and shift on the bench. Father was still not home.
At that time and for many years after I still believed that our father – our guide and anchor – could do as he chose. I expect that Gabriel, even though he is four years older than I, had similar feelings about the man who was our beginning and ending. As the years passed we both grew to understand how serious Father was about his family and their care. We eventually learned from his teachings that the respected leader is more concerned for those who follow than with him self.

About the Author

“Author Dave McGowan has been a cowboy,forest fire fighter, heavy equipment operator,farmhand, gardener, road musician and businessman. He now writes, and works as a commercial driver, in Northern British Columbia.” The forgoing is the bio from the back of my novels and one might conclude from this information that I was a poor employee … either lazy or didn’t know what I was doing … and was kicked off a lot of jobs. You would be partially correct, at least in surmising that I don’t know what I am doing. As for my being a poor employee, you would have to ask my bosses … although I think I’ve managed to trick the one I have now. Of course, when I had my own business my boss thought I was marvelous. Truthfully, I’ve managed over the years to find employment regardless of my location or the problems that might exist with the economy. I enjoyed much of that experience at the time and am glad that I attained it. I’ve also visited a good portion of North America and lived in several areas of Canada where I met some great people and enjoyed some wonderful country. Speaking of great people, Karen and I are parents to four great people who have supplied eight grandchildren who show that improvements can be possible in each generation. One of those has added a great-grand daughter to the line.
