About this title

Synopsis:

Bill Miner's short stay in British Columbia had dramatic effect ina cultural mythology of a new province which is still with us today in film, stage plays,poems, songs, and books. A fascinating example of the historical true-crime genre, this volume highlights the ordinary people of B.C. during a time when the frontier was dying, and today's modern world was emerging. Intriguing glimpses into the operation of the Canadian Pacific Railroad, the B.C. Provincial Police,the Royal North West Mounted Police, and the B.C. Penetentiary bring a forgotten era to life. 100 years after the fascinating events that shook Canada's westmost province, this story can finally be told. The writer has taken a snapshot in time, rich in detail based on restricted and private sources never before seen or published. The tragic facts of the guilt and innocense of two men, one a tubercullin Canadian school teacher and the other a reclusive American on the run from unknown events across the border are revealed in this book. The wealth of detail presented by the author will enable the reader to render judgement on whether that Kamloops jury and the unmanipulated public opinion of 100 years ago were right or wrong. After years of painstaking research, the story of how a mysterious Third Man was identified and how retribution finally caught up to him is told in stark detail.
