They examine the social background of the men, their living conditions, indiscretions, health, habits, discipline, benefits and marital relations. They document the influential role of the NWMP on the political, social and cultural life of the developing western community. An accurate account and a compelling read, Red Coats, shows how the image of the mounties took shape on the prairies.
