Constable John Kirkup was called to a 'gambling and whiskey drive' in Yale, B.C. He wound up arresting the nude hostess. Kirkup, the local newspaper editor, and the pastor fought for abstinence while the unruly workers fought and laid railway tracks. Further up the canyon, the great railwayman Andrew Onderdonk was daring the little steamship Kuzzy through the impenetrable Hell's Gate. Don Waite also recounts the adventures of the gold rush, the fur brigade trails, and Cariboo wagon road.
Former Mountie Don Waite, makes his living as an aerial and commercial photographer in Maple Ridge. His interest in the Cariboo Fraser Canyon, and Fraser Valley, subjects of this trilogy, was sparked by the awesome mountainscapes and fed by police assignments which uncovered some dusty archives and irresistible reports. To substantiate these, he tramped the terrible terrain himself.
