9781553801023: Ghost of Heroes Past

Fiction. Young Adult Novel. Thirteen-year-old Johnny Anders is something of a misfit, with no friends and a poor school record, but all this begins to change when he is awakened one night to find a soldier-ghost in his bedroom. Johnny is taken back in time to meet a series of unusual heroes in Canada's war history. These include Joan Bamford Fletcher, who commandeered Japanese soldiers to take hundreds of wounded civilians to safety through the jungles of Indonesia, and the much-decorated Raymond Collishaw, through whom Johnny learns that Canada played a role in the Russian Revolution.

About the Author:

Charles Reid was born and raised in London's East End during the Second World War. After his emigration to Canada in 1975, he discovered that the young Calgary flying ace from World War II, Willie McKnight, who had been one of his childhood heroes, was virtually unknown in his home town, even though a boulevard was named after him. Determined to bring the McKnight name to the notice of Canadians, Reid has written a number of articles about him as well as Hurricanes over London, his first book. Reid now makes his home in Nanaimo, B.C.
