Trooper and Redskin

The above image is from one of my favourite Google Books finds. The book is 'Trooper and Redskin in the Far North-West: Recollections of life in the North-West Mounted Police, Canada 1884-1888.' It was written by John G. Donkin, and published in 1889. It's a wonderful book, and his language is beautiful. I wish to learn to write like Donkin. Well, a cross between Dickens, Thompson, and Donkin. If you wish to read a wonderful account of being in the North-West Mounted Police, you can find the eBook for free on Google.
