Product Description

From the Back Cover

Ghost Town Stories II - From Renegade to Ruin Along the Red Coat Trail "An automatic revolver of seemingly gigantic proportions was playing on me. One man said, 'Be quiet, we won't hurt you. We're just going to hold up the bank.'" This book will be especially fascinating for all readers interested in: history western Canada When the train came west through southern Saskatchewan and Alberta, settlers and then outlaws were quick to follow. They came with high hopes and grand ambitions, but the Depression and a series of natural disasters left them destitute. Author Johnnie Bachusky journeys back to the towns in their heyday to tell the stories of their colourful past.

This book is well written, and gives a nice tour of some
Ghost towns in Saskatchewn. The cover is particularly interesting
to me as my sister was married in that very church, some 60 years ago.
