Put Your Hand in My Hand is the personal, lyrical story of the relationship between one of Canada's most beloved singer-songwriters and his daughter, a talented musical artist.

Gene MacLellan's contribution to the Canadian songbook is legendary. He penned top-forty hits, including "Snowbird," "Bidin' My Time," and "Put Your Hand in the Hand," and his compositions vaulted the careers of international stars such as Anne Murray. In 2004, his daughter Catherine, a Juno award winner, three-time Canadian Folk Award Winner, and two-time ECMA winner, released her debut album to critical acclaim. As the story's principal narrator, along with experienced biographer Harvey Sawler, this anticipated memoir paints an intimate portrait of a complex man whose words and melodies left us wanting more than he was able to give, before he took his life in 1995 at the age of fifty-six. Includes song lyrics and a colour insert of family photos.

Harvey Sawler has written more than a dozen books, including contemporary fiction, non-fiction, and historical fiction. Sawler is a skilled biographer as he showed in Frank McKenna: Beyond Politics. And he is well-versed in the rich Atlantic music scene, having written about the late Ron Hynes (One Man Grand Band: The Lyrical Life of Ron Hynes) and Dutch Mason, one of Canada's best-known blues men (On the Road with Dutch Mason). He lives on Prince Edward Island, where he also works in branding and creative copywriting.
