KIRKUS REVIEW

A fine contemporary and historical account of the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police)- how it grew, its guiding ideals and its modern methods- restates the living legend of Canada's remarkable police force. The bulk of the narrative tells of actual cases, both famous and typical, through which Mountie techniques and psychology are forcefully depicted. Reading like detective thrillers, the episodes build a growing impression of the dignity and self-reliance which have always characterized the Mounties and given them a special appeal for an American audience who think they are tops too.
