9781926936949: The Man Who Was Hanged by a Thread nd Other Tales from BCs First Lawmen (Amazing Stories) (Amazing Stories (Heritage House))

From 1858 until 1950, the BC Provincial Police maintained law and order in British Columbia, patrolling this vast and rugged area by horseback, boat, snowshoes and dog team until the arrival of the train, automobile and airplane. These classic cases from the files of North America's first territorial constabulary bring to life the lawmen who upheld the peace and the criminals who disrupted it. From the tale of a Texas gambler who though he had committed the perfect murder to the mystery of a Quesnel family who disappeared under suspicious circumstances, these dramatic stories provide a vivid window into frontier society and the challenges faced by members of this exceptional police force.

About the Author:

Born in North Berwick, Scotland, Cecil George ""Nobby"" Clark (1899-1993) was 17 when he enlisted in the B.C. Provincial Police, first working as a junior clerk and rising to the position of deputy commissioner in 1959. He retired about the time the force was absorbed by the RCMP, and then became its unofficial historian. He has written four books about the force's cases over its 92-year history.
