Jefferson, North Carolina: McFarland & Company, 2000. Hardbound . 1st Edition. BINDING/CONDITION: dark reddish-brown cloth; Near Fine condition; no dust jacket. Includes fourteen maps and other black and white illustrations. The following is taken from the author's preface: ''As the crow flies, Eugene Macnamara traveled more than 40000 miles in fives years and literally halfway round the globe. Each country on Macnamara's journey could occupy a researcher's lifetime and each helps explain his adventure in California. Despite the flaws in my filling out this huge canvas, I feel the Macnamara story is worth an attempt to tell for the first time. He spent his best-known 46 days in California. The taking of California from Mexico by the United States in 1846 has been chronicled often by American scholars. My account, from Macnamara's standpoint and using new British and Mexican sources, adds the last major jigsaw piece which has always been missing from that American story.'' 8vo (about 9.25 inches tall) 230 pag ...

But no questions were even asked; Johnson shot one officer dead through a hole in the wall of his log cabin. A firefight ensued, and when the remaining Mountie returned with reinforcements, Johnson was gone. On Johnson's heels were a corps of Mounties and an irregular posse on dogsled, supplied by airplanes dropping food. Johnson, on snowshoes, seemed superhuman in his ability to evade capture.

London: Macmillan, 1973. Hardbound . 1st U.K. Ed. 8vo, 400 pp, index, reference sources, bibliography, chronology, illustrated endpapers, 3 maps, 8 double sided plates The history of the North West Mounted Police has long been buried in legend and myth. Hurried into existence in 1873 to meet the threat of American whiskey traders and Indian unrest, a meager force of 300 men set off in July of 1874 on an epic, and near-disastrous march across the prairie to the foothills of the Rockies. From those beginnings to the days of the Northwest Rebellion, the author has used letters, diaries, reports and memoirs of the men who lived through those harsh and historic years to portray them as they actually were -- men of flesh and blood, instead of the romantic myth. As one early Mountie put it, "We were as God made us and oftentimes even worse." BINDING/CONDITION: brown paper covered boards; a Very Good+ book; the dust jacket has one marble sized chip, and is otherwise Very Good; the dj art is clean and bright with ve ... Read more
