"The story of Tom Thomson and Winnifred Trainor is one of circumstantial evidence, missed opportunity, speculation, theorizing, wild guessing and, in the case of some who have become caught up in this tantalizing mystery, blind prayer that what they said might actually have been what happened. I myself may be guilty . . ."
Oh yes, Roy McGregor, indeed you are. Northern Light is an intricately detailed and amazing complicated expression of speculation, wild guessing, and theorizing that in the long run reveals far less about the life of Tom Thomson than it thinks it does. And has surprisingly little to say about his work.
