Macleod of the Mounties

Overview

James Farquharson MacLeod was a giant figure in the early history of the Canadian West. The remarkable product of a very remarkable cultural background: from family origins in the Scottish highlands to the colonial experience of the vast Canadian prairies, the life of this unique and enterprising individual is also an account of Canada’s character and origins. The Red River Colony, the North-West Mounted Police, the native peoples, whiskey traders and intrepid pioneers, all feature in this compelling narrative tale of a great Scottish-Canadian hero.
