Beschreibung

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Hugh Gillis was the first person to walk across Canada, and became Canadian all-round champion of track and field, now called the decathlon. On a bet and a dare, on 31 January 1906 at the age of 22 he set out from North Sydney, Nova Scotia, with two others to walk to San Francisco and back within a year. They hiked on the railroad track, crossed central Maine in cold and blizzard and reached Montreal. There they disagreed. Gillis, suffering from sore feet, went on alone towards Vancouver.
