Bill Gallaher's bestselling vel The Journey follows a group of three adventurous Overlanders--two young men and one remarkable woman--as they travel west in 1862, from the Manitoba prairies to the goldfields of the Cariboo. With his gift for storytelling, Gallaher brings this intriguing era to the page as he vividly recounts the overland trek of the spirited Catherine Schubert, who made the trip in an undetected state of pregnancy; James Sellar, a combative young man of rigid determination; and Thomas McMicking, the visionary captain of the often unruly company. Reprinted with an appealing new look, this popular vel is an engaging and moving tribute to a band of heroic pioneers.
