About the Author
As a 30-year veteran of the RCMP, Robert Gordon Teather was only the 13th Canadian to receive the Cross of Valour after rescuing two fishermen trapped in an overturned boat two miles off the BC coast. He was also awarded the RCMP's highest award, the Commissioner's Commendation for Bravery. A long-time member of the RCMP underwater team, Robert wrote Underwater Investigator and produced many training cassettes related to underwater crime and tragedy. In addition to his duties related to uniform patrol and diving instruction, Robert spent seven years in hostage negotiation. He gave lectures throughout Canada and the US to police officers, firefighters, doctors and others on diving techniques, underwater-crime-scene photography, ice-diving procedures and many other diving-related topics. Robert died of a heart attack on November 13, 2004, at 57.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

In my opinion, this book should be read after "Mountie Makers" as several characters have been introduced previously.
I enjoyed reading it and using it as a reference to history of the Force. My Father served in the R.C.M.P. from 1951 to 1975. Very interesting career.
