A HALF CENTURY OF RANDOM REMINISCENCES OF CAPTAIN WILLIAM WHITE, K.C.

Author: George G. Mills

Synopsis: William White is an adventurous young man who throws himself into each unfolding happening. Living from the mid 1850s to the mid 1950s, he witnesses many historic events, such as the settlement of Saskatchewan and building of Regina, the Riel Rebellion, the Gold Rush, and the first North West Council. He is able, hardworking, and does not shrink from new challenges.

There is gambling and high living in the gold-rush towns; there is danger from murderers and ice on the rivers; land travel is by horse, dogsled and wagon. He meets many fascinating characters, as well as men trying to establish law, order and government. In his later years, he is convinced to write his memoirs, which help bring to life this pivotal half-century.
