Northern Lights

by Gilbert Parker

The tales in this book belong to two different epochs in the life of the Far West. The first five are reminiscent of “border days and deeds”--of days before the great railway was built which changed a waste into a fertile field of civilization. The remaining stories cover the period passed since the Royal Northwest Mounted Police and the Pullman Car first startled the early pioneer, and sent him into the land of the farther North or drew him into the quiet circle of civic routine and humdrum occupation.
