If Frederick Scott is remembered at all today, it is as minor Victorian poet or as the father of his illustrious son F. R. Scott. However, Frederick Scott was almost 55 years old and the pastor of St. Matthews Anglican Church in Quebec City when he volunteered to go overseas to serve as senior chaplain with the 1st Canadian Infantry Division during World War I. The depth of his faith was tested when he lost a son at the Battle of the Somme. Through a series of unpublished letters in the McCord Museum, author Alan Hustak tells the powerful and absorbing story of a man revered by the Canadian military for his remarkable ministry. His letters home from the front reveals how Scott discovered firsthand what fear really is, how to conquer it, and how to inspire others.

Alan Hustak is the author of Exploring Old Montreal; Loughheed: A Biography, Montreal’s Underground City; Sir William Hingston (1829–1907): Montreal Mayor, Surgeon and Banker; and Titanic: The Canadian Story. He lives in Montreal.
