Stompin' Tom Connors is a Canadian legend. There are very few Canadians who don't know the foot-stompin' patriot in the cowboy hat who sang almost exclusively about the country he loved and called home.

But there is much more to Tom Connors than "Bud the Spud" and "The Hockey Song." This biography paints the picture of an intelligent, stubborn, creative, cantankerous and thoughtful man who created a character that would be embraced by Canadians from coast to coast. This is the story of the man behind Stompin' Tom.

CHARLIE RHINDRESS is the author of I'm Not What I Seem, the best-selling biography of Rita MacNeil, which was shortlisted for Best First Book at the Atlantic Book Awards. He is also an actor, writer, director and producer who has worked on more than one hundred theatre productions over the past thirty years. From artistic producer at Eastern Front Theatre to co-founder of Live Bait Theatre, Charlie has acted or directed at theatres across the country and appeared in a number of films and television programs, including Trailer Park Boys, Mr. D., Red Rover and Haven. His plays have been produced by Neptune Theatre, Theatre Orangeville, Live Bait Theatre, Ship's Company Theatre, Mulgrave Road Theatre and Theatre NorthWest, among others. His two published scripts are The Maritime Way of Life, which was nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award as Best New Play, and Flying On Her Own, based on the life of Rita MacNeil. He currently resides at Amherst, NS and is a proud father of four.
