Michael Clague


A compelling and deeply personal memoir by Michael Clague, a Vancouver community activist with a career across Canada. Lessons learned about self, about community organizing and the struggles to build a better world. The reader is challenged to reflect on her/his own life journey.

I do not remember a book that moved me so much as this one.

– Ray Spaxman. Former Director of Planning, City of Vancouver.

Should be in the library of every school of social work, social planning and planning.

– Gordon Gram. Retired, development industry and environmental and land use public sector planner.

I liked this book very much. In my career in publishing and philanthropy I’ve read about many inspiring people, and I’m really impressed with his story telling skills. Like a friend sharing some of his life story over a coffee or a beer.

– Karen Theroux. Former writer/editor for the Carnegie Corporation, New York.
