Description: The era of Canada's Wild West has been a well-kept secret. The stories in this book illuminate the checkered complexion of Canada's Old West, and the nefarious, the heroic, and those somewhere-in-between individuals who populated it.

The era of the Wild West has been a well-kept secret in Canada's history, but it is no less adventurous and intriguing than that of the southwestern American states. The stories in this book - ranging from gunfights to manhunts and the rough justice system shaped by the character of the times - illuminate the checkered complexion of Canada's Old West, and the nefarious, the heroic, and those somewhere-in-between individuals who populated it.

Author Biography

Ted Meyers researches the history of North America's Wild West. He has uncovered many hitherto unknown facts pertaining to western heroes and villains, including the certainty that many were both - and often at the same time. He has also written on naval history and has published two books on North American Native legends. When he is not at his home in Victoria he is probably in some western ghost town, or following the cold trails of the men and women who made the Wild West so interesting.
