I have to give a huge shout out to my public library. The Canmore Library, located in the gooooorrrggeeeoousss Elevation Place is my favourite spot in town. I am not too sure how many of you utilize your local library but I can not stress this enough: If you are writing anything, GO TO THE LIBRARY! Everything is FREE and, depending on your library, they can get you anything your little heart desires.
I’ve been pouring over books while researching Trapped but the one that is most on point for me is Dick North’s The Mad Trapper of Rat River. The Yukon legend spent years tracking down the true identity of Albert Johnson and while DNA testing would disprove his theories, his chronicling of the events are astounding. While Dick may no longer be with us I aim to do him proud in my approach. Here are some photo’s I took of photo’s he used in his book. You can purchase his book HERE.
