The author, a Canadian historian and rancher, discusses life on the Canadian frontier between 1870 and World War I. Intending to dispel the myth that the frontier was inhabited by peaceful, law-abiding ranchers, he describes the prostitution, gunfights and cattle rustling that were part of the ordinary life of the cowboys and settlers.
