Editorial Reviews

"... Guarding the Goldfields is a valuable addition to any Canadian history or heritage collection. It provides a different perspective on an exciting era in Canadian history not encountered in the usual goldrush accounts."

— Canadian Book Review Annual

"Guarding the Goldfields is both a valuable addition to the historical literature of the Yukon Field Force and a good read."

— Canadian Defence Quarterly

"Seldom is such meticulously documented first-hand material describing times long past so immediate in flavour and so absorbingly readable. Can be highly recommended to students interested in the gold-rush era and its attendant social problems."
