I wrote a letter to William Seeman

January 3rd, 2011 · No Comments · Mysteries



I wrote a letter to a man who may no longer be alive. I last heard from William Seeman, the author of “Down Goose Creek,” about five years ago, and I have written him again to tell him how this remarkable chronicle of a canoe journey in 1930 will play a role in my own book project, which is under construction. It’s a strange thing to write a letter to someone under these circumstances. Every major event is supposed to be known immediately now; the concept of being lost, of missed connections, is no longer relevant in the age of Facebook, GPS and Accurint. I do hope William Seeman is still alive, and sentient. I need his help.
