An epic historical recounting of the occupation and colonization of the Canadian West
Francis Jeffery Dickens arrives in Canada in 1874 with all the prejudices and presumptions of a white colonist/settler. After serving 11 years as a member of the North West Mounted Police, Frank is horrified by the mendacity and theft that robbed the Indigenous Peoples of their lands and begins to understand the urgent need to live in harmony with Mother Nature.
