Back in June I wrote Visiting Vancouver - 3: Canadian history through Australian eyes, early days. This provided an introduction to early Canadian history based on Craig Brown (Editor), The Illustrated History of Canada, Key Porter Books, Toronto, 2007. Now I have received a rather nice compliment from Christopher Moore, one of the book's authors. He wrote:
You have digested a lot of Canadian history very effectively! -- and I say this as one of the authors of The Illustrated History of Canada, the book you were reading.
I was really chuffed. I thought that this was a well written post, more so when I read it again.
I was even more chuffed when, as all we bloggers do, I followed the comment back to find out more details on Christopher.
Christopher is a distinguished free lance Canadian historian who seems to be doing just the things that I would like to do in this last stage of my career. He just began a whole lot earlier! He also has a very interesting history blog.
Things like this encourage me to keep writing.
