Adventurer to visit

  • Sep. 25, 2013 2:00 p.m.

Adventurer, author, and filmmaker Tim Cope has travelled thousands of miles across Asia and Europe, partly on horseback, and now he’s coming to Haida Gwaii to promote his latest book. On The Trail Of Genghis Khan details Mr. Cope’s journey from Mongolia to Hungary on horseback, which took him three years to complete. His journey has also been made into a six part video series with the same name. Organizer Marvin Boyd will be at the Legion in Queen Charlotte on Wednesday October 12 to show the first three 42 minute segments of On The Trail Of Genghis Kahn, as part of Mr. Cope’s North American Book Tour, and on October 19 Mr. Cope himself will be present to show the last segment and speak about his journey. If more than eighty people turn up at the Legion on the 12, Mr. Boyd says he will rent the community centre out instead. Entrance fee is ten dollars and there is a possibility of Mr. Cope selling signed copies of his book, which Mr. Boyd says has just been released. Anyone wanting to know more about Tim Cope and his journeys can visit his website at www.timcopejourneys.com.
