Excerpt from Sergeant 331: Personal Recollections of a Member of the Canadian Northwest Mounted Police From 1879-1885
The mounted police force numbered approximately three hundred, and had the supervision of a territory, limited as to their activities, of about one thousand miles square. In later years, when the immense territory of the Yukon became the Mecca of the gold hunters who ﬂocked to that far-away re gion by the thousands, this force was increased to about nine hundred.
No attempt has been made by the author to weave any romance, or to introduce any fiction into this work; he has relied entirely upon the recital of plain, everyday facts to interest his readers. He trusts that he may have been able to do this. That alone will be sufficient reward for his labor.
