The Bad and the Lonely: Seven Stories of the Best--and Worst--Canadian Outlaws
In this book Martin Robin tells seven remarkable and fascinating stories of Canadian badmen. All were heroes--or villains--in their time, and they remain popular legends today. The stories describe figures such as Bill Miner, the charming train robber who regularly held up the CPR; Donald Morrison, the Megantic Outlaw, who eluded capture for months after being shooting a constable sent to evict his family from their farm; and Almighty Voice, a Saskatchewan Cree hunted by Mounties for feeding his family with a stolen government cow, finally brought down with artillery fire. The Bad and the Lonely is a lucid, witty and poignant book that brings to life colourful and tragic figures from Canada's past.
