The history of the RCMP comes alive in bright, colourful illustrations!

In this lovely reissue, the story of our country's Royal Canadian Mounted Police is told.

Long ago, Canada's first prime minister sent out a call for help to build a railway. The men who answered were teachers and farmers, students, and lumberjacks. But when they set out together for the west, they were all proud new Mounted Police. And so we learn how instrumental they were in turning a brand new nation into the Canada we know today.
