Using excerpts from the personal journals of some members of the Northwest Mounted Police, the organization that would later become the RCMP, The Mounties March West tells a story of early colonization across Canada. The focus centres on the Mounted Police’s perspectives and the central Alberta region. As the book only presents one side of the story, combining this title with materials outlining Indigenous perspectives will show how understandings of events differ between groups. Though it is filled with many facts, the writing is not dry and the book could be used as a primer to engage students who prefer to learn through stories.
