Why? The Journey 1965
by Lou H Alwood and Lou H Alwood

If you have ever had a dream you needed to fulfil, and challenged yourself to pursue that dream, then you have a story to tell. Join us on our trail ride by horseback, coast to coast across Canada in 1965. Living with Mother Nature, learning to ride, we crossed the Kootenays, Monashees (in a snow storm), the wide open Prairies, and on through to Halifax, N.S. We endured some of the worst thunderstorms, mosquitoes, ticks and black flies there had been in years. Our only rule was NEVER GIVE UP! We enjoyed breathtaking rainbows, cool clear nights filled with a million stars, the aroma of camp fires and the melody of running brooks. Along those back roads we met some of the most remarkable people. Join us on our journey, transcribed from a water logged diary, with honest, amazing experiences. Truly worth the read!
