George Burden and Amanda Sutherland visit the 3.5 million dollar home of prominent Canadian financier, industrialist and military commander, Sir Henry Mill Pellat. Started in 1911 and completed in 1914, it’s luxury , antiquities and modern amenities may appear ostentatious but in actuality it just feels like a family home.
By any measure, George Burden lives a remarkable life, experiencing the world in a way few people ever have. He’s soared through the air in a CF-18 during an aerial combat exercise and he’s marvelled at the ocean depths from a deep sea submersible. He’s swam in all of the world’s oceans including the Antarctic and the Arctic and somehow he manages to practice medicine, raise a family and write both prolifically and well. What’s his secret?

Our writer Dan L. Hays tells about the time he joined the Red Green Fan Club and caught up with Red himself.
