The latest installment in the critically acclaimed Canadian Flyer Adventures series whisks Matt and Emily -- and readers along with them -- to 1888 and to the rough, tough western town of Galbraith's Ferry. A gold rush boomtown, Galbraith's Ferry is simmering with tensions between Aboriginal Peoples and the settlers who encroached on their land trying to strike it rich. The inquisitive pair is relieved to find that the imposing figure of Sam Benfield Steele, the burly superintendent of this isolated Wild West outpost, has come riding in to settle tensions and restore order. The Mounties are the only force of law in this place, and it's said "the Mounties always get their man!" Emily and Matt lend a hand to this legendary figure as he tries to solve a really tough case. But will they be able to stay out of danger, and help the innocent men charged with murder? Ages 6-9.
