When Amy MacDonald, the school teacher at Hastings Mill, discovers new Winchester '86 rifles are being smuggled through the city she tries to enlist the aid of the earnest but slow-witted provincial policema. She involves the Royal North West Mounted, a curious local newspaperman, a businessman, a knowledgeable woman of the street, and her irrepressible younger borther in her efforts to prevent the contraband from flowing to the Metis rebels in the North West. Vancouver life is complicated by the murder of a Metis and the persecution of the Chinese living in the city. Within the social limits placed on women in Vancouver of 1886, Amy tries to obtain justice. Clean, bright and unmarked. Very light wear. Excellent copy.
