This is a story of courage and adventure. It reveals how workers struggled through long days, enduring extreme weather, pests, and the often poor food and housing, as they built a railway through the difficult terrain of Canada’s northern wilderness to Churchill, Manitoba.

Author Ian Bickle provides rare insight into the survey parties who explored this region of ice, snow, swamp and muskeg. He gives a historical account of the organizations, such as the RNWMP (later RCMP), that helped bring order and discipline to the rugged life on the line, and Frontier College teachers, who assisted the workers in their labors and their education.

The men who surveyed the Bay route, the workers who built it and the people who keep it alive have raised the level of human achievement in Canada. Their story is an important and colorful part of Canadian history.
