Tom Thomson, as the famous Canadian landscape artist, gave Canada its most enduring icons, The Jack Pine and The West Wind. But Tom Thomson, as a private man, remains an enigma. Little is known about the man and even less is known about his personal thoughts, feelings and struggles with his art and with life against the darkening backdrop of history. A century has gone by since Tom Thomson disappeared in Algonquin Park on July 8, 1917. Eight days later, a body was found, rising up from the waters of Canoe Lake. What really happened, to this day, remains a mystery.  Did he die of natural causes? Was it an accident? Was he murdered? Follow the final months and days of Tom Thomson in the revealing and intriguing pages of his journal.

“I have spent most of my life studying and speculating on Tom Thomson’s mysterious life and death. There is no recording of Tom’s voice, yet I have come over the years to feel that Tim Bouma has captured that ‘voice’ and given us new insights into the person he was and the times in which he lived.”  – Roy MacGregor, author of Canoe Lake and Northern Light: The Enduring Mystery of Tom Thomson and the Woman Who Loved Him.

“In Tom Thomson: Journal of My Last Spring, Tim Bouma brilliantly illuminates the mind of an enigmatic and very private Canadian icon. It was a journey I didn’t want to end. My view of Thomson will forever be guided by the very human voice in this fine book.” – Terry Fallis, two-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour
