subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description In the spring of 1881, William A. MacDonald embarked on a great adventure. With his brother, George, and his neighbour, Bill Kaneen, he went West to seek his fortune in Col- orado. Before he left, he promised to write "a full account" of the journey out to his friend, John A. Dewar. He did, and today the story of his going makes highly entertaining reading. More than that, MacDonald's odyssey, and the reasons behind it, reflect a whole era on his native Prince Edward Island.
