The year is 1885. Hank James has been in Canada several months panning gold from a stream near Roswell, British Columbia. When he hears a prizefight will be held in town, he attends along with everyone for miles around. With a little help from the fight referee, he wins big betting on the fight.Having realized that the life of a miner isn't nearly as romantic or rewarding as he expected, and with advice from the policeman who helped him win money on the fight, Hank goes to Farwell to haul freight with pack horses for contractors building the transcontinental railroad.The railroad's security, a detachment of North West Mounted Police, have maintained across the West that no liquor be allowed one mile on either side of the rail bed. Provincial authorities disagree.Hank James believes in honoring and repaying his debts, but that doesn't mean he should be involved in a war between the BC Provincial Police and the North West Mounted. He and his partners have trouble enough running their freight business, they don't need to be caught between competing policemen. They are already stuck between Canada's transcontinental railroad people and the contractors doing the actual construction.While the police are fighting one another, who is looking for criminals, particularly those stealing Hank's horses?Despite a variety of jobs, D.M. McGowan now works as a commercial driver and lives near Mile "0" of the world-famous Alaska Highway. His stories bring Canadian history to life. "I believe in seeing morality and societal responsibility rewarded. Too much of today's fiction seems to lead into the dark instead of the light."Publisher's website: sbprabooks.com/davidmmcgowanAuthor's websites: dmmcgowan.blogspot.com and firstname.lastname@example.org

The Great Liquor War isaction-packed and entertaining! Hank is easygoing with a dry humour edged withsarcasm making his narrative hilarious! ... Not a single dull moment in thisbook. Because of the engaging plot I found that my enthusiasm for the bookremained high all the way to the end.
