Most of this novel is based on historical fact, including the actual names of rivers, mountains and towns ' a few of which were christened by those who actually constructed the telegraph line. By early 1866, the overland telegraph line had been built to Fort Fraser, east of Prince George. Exploration had been conducted to a point a few miles north of Kispiox Village, near Hazelton, one of the Gitxsan villages currently under land claim negotiations.

Having lived his life in mostly urban centres, he has no idea of what to expect out in the vast wilds of British Columbia. From assassins to Bukwas, this novel is packed full of action, adventure, history and legend.
