Law of the Yukon: A Pictorial History of the Mounted Police in the Yukonby Helene Dobrowolsky
Synopses & Reviews
A northern author looks at the challenges faced by the Mounties in Canada's Yukon Territory over the last 100 years, from their arrival on the eve of the world-famous Klondike Gold Rush, to the present.
Through vivid photos, careful research and use of personal diaries and correspondence, Helene Dobrowolsky shows the reality of Mounted Police history to be even more intriguing than the fiction of Hollywood's Sergeant Preston. It's a history made richer still by the women and First Nations people who contributed to the success of the force in this vast land. And then there are dog stories, lots of them, some hilarious, some tragic.
Law of the Yukon presents the fascinating history of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in the Yukon in a thoroughly entertaining and informative mix of text and photographs.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 188) and index.
