Guarding the Goldfields 
Back Cover
Front Cover

  Canada's gold rush of the late 1890s attracted dreamers and schemers from all over North America, men bent on making their fortunes at any cost. Guarding the Goldfields is one story from that turbulent period of the men sent to guard the Yukon and maintain order. The Yukon Field Force, of which Edward Lester was a spirited member, was dispatched to provide an armed presence in Canada's northern-most region, and represented the first time armed troops had been sent to the huge region lying north of the sixtieth parallel.
