It took four years for Tom Macrae, alter ego of Sergeant Tom Mackay, of
Lord Strathcona's Horse, to make it home to Winnipeg after enlisting and
fighting his way through the trenches and cavalry charges of World War
The odyssey for Soldier of the Horse is two years shorter. This story of a Winnipeg boy will make the welcome trip soon: the countdown is on to my visit to Winnipeg to sign copies of Soldier of the Horse, two years after it was first published. Should be a fun day, at McNally Robinson, 2 pm on Saturday April 20th. See the item in McNally's newsletter here.
