Peter C. Cavelti, Author

Peter has several internationally published books and hundreds of published papers to his credit. His early writing centered on investment and socio-economic topics. In 1997, his critically acclaimed social study of colonialism, Tuiavii’s Way: A South Sea Chief’s Comments on Western Society, was published, followed by A Dangerous Remedy, a novel. He is currently working on a retrospective and another novel.

Peter was a Contributing Editor and columnist with The Money Letter, Personal Finance and Physicians Monthly, Market Report and Perspectives. His investment commentaries were widely quoted in the Canadian, UK and U.S. financial press.

Peter and his wife Caroline spend considerable time with their family—in Toronto, where they all live; at the family cottage in Georgian Bay; and in the Colorado mountains, where Peter  seeks out challenging terrain with his three grandchildren, Alexandra, Abigail and Cameron.

Peter and Caroline are also passionate adventure travellers. They were members of the first Canadian expedition to the Kingdom of Mustang and have extensively trekked in the Himalayas, South East Asia and North Africa.
