About the Book

Since 1873, the Mounties have brought the law to the furthest reaches of the Canadian frontier. Sam Steele, the “Lion of the North,” was involved in almost every significant event in the Canadian West; James Macleod and James Walsh negotiated peace with the First Nations peoples. Less famous, unsung heroes risked their lives enforcing justice in the Canadian wilds. From stopping the whisky trade to policing the chaotic gold rush and patrolling the lonely North, these true tales of the early days of the Force are sure to amaze and entertain.
