The Book Launch for Bob Mackay's historical novel "Soldier of the Horse" is March 2, 2011 at 7 pm in the Cloverdale Legion, 17567 - 57th Avenue, Cloverdale, BC. Bob Mackay has been reading bits of this novel as it has progressed over the last couple of years at the Canadian Author Association where he is president of the West Coast Branch. His readings have been exciting and moving. His grandfather served with the Canadian forces in WWI. It's hard to believe but Churchill had served on horse only short years before in Africa and in WWI calvary last went up against machine guns and tanks.
