Red Serge And Polar Bear Pants: The Biography Of Harry Stallworthy, RCMP
by William Barr
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0888644337, Paperback)Harry Stallworthy spent 20 years in the Canadian North with the RCMP. While stationed at Bache Peninsula, Stallworthy led one of the longest arctic sledge patrols in the history of the Force, searching for traces of German geologist Dr. Hans Krüger. In 1934 he set off with the Oxford University Ellesmere Land Expedition. He was present at the historic meeting of Roosevelt and Churchill in Quebec in 1944 and in the late 1950s was in charge of security for the eastern half of the DEW Line. From policing and prospecting in the Yukon to coordinating aerial surveillance patrols against rum-runners in the Gaspé, the story of Stallworthy’s life was rarely uneventful. It captures the excitement, adventure, and mystery of the North.
