Rich Mole is a former broadcaster, communications consultant and president of a Vancouver Island advertising agency. Fuelled by a lifelong fascination with history, he writes extensively about the events and people of Canada's past.
With every passing year, we seem to gain a greater awareness of the forces that shaped the events of the 19th century, and Mole's work reflects that. He does not simply recite the bare facts of the events; he tries to find the reasons why those events occurred . . . Mole has written a highly accessible account that will appeal to readers of all ages. --Dave Obee, the Times Colonist
