Guarding the Goldfields
Canadaâ€™s gold rush of the late 1890s attracted dreamers and schemers from all over North America. Guarding the Goldfields is the story of the men sent to guard the Yukon and maintain order.
"... Guarding the Goldfields is a valuable addition to any Canadian history or heritage collection. It provides a different perspective on an exciting era in Canadian history not encountered in the usual goldrush accounts."
"Guarding the Goldfields is both a valuable addition to the historical literature of the Yukon Field Force and a good read."
"Seldom is such meticulously documented first-hand material describing times long past so immediate in flavour and so absorbingly readable. Can be highly recommended to students interested in the gold-rush era and its attendant social problems."
