Book - 1991
Rate this:
From BC's colonial days through 1950, the BC Provincial Police were the province's main law enforcers and, in many places, the only ones. It was up to them to catch and prosecute thieves, gold-rush swindlers, brawlers, bootleggers and murderers throughout BC's vast wilderness, and constables also acted as tax collectors, coroners, census takers, paramedics and interpreters. This book is an absorbing, well-researched, very readable treatment of a little-known slice of BC history.
