Under their various names the Mounted Police have played a vital,colourful, but often controversial role in Canadian history, andnowhere has this been truer than on the northern frontier. The policewere the agents through which the central government assertedsovereignty over the Yukon and the Northwest Territories, just as ithad done earlier on the Prairies. This book describes to what extentthe RCMP shaped the northern frontier -- a frontier which steadilyshifted, separating territory under actual government control from thatin which it was nominal. The chapters treat each new spurt in thisexpansion and the period of contact and transition which followed.
