The Royal North-West Mounted Police. A Corps History
Hardcover. FAIR. FAIR. Boards are noticeably worn and bumped at the corners, a couple of scraped sections, rubbing to spine.4" scratch to front. A few small stains to closed page block. Internally is much better, with clean, bright pages-no signs of wear. About this book:From the Author's preface:ONE undertaking to write a history of such a redoubtable corps as the Royal North-West Mounted Police, a corps which might be said to be constantly on strenuous active service, and consequently peculiarly prolific of stirring story, is tempted to dwell rather upon the dramatic and sensational incidents of the records of the force than upon the more matter of fact and historically valuable annals. I have tried to resist this temptation as far as possible, my desire being to produce a volume of some sort of historical value—rather an authentic record of the origin, development and work of the force than a spicy collection of stirring adventures, more or less apocryphal in character. A few, comparatively a very few, thoroughly authenticated stirring incidents of the service of the force are related in the following pages, but no more than enough to intelligently illustrate the character of that service.
