Scoundrels and Scallywags

Characters from Alberta's Past

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Alberta has a reputation for attracting and producing characters with little respect for the law and less for public opinion. In this collection of biographies, Brian Brennan profiles some of the flamboyant, eccentric and downright bizarre people who established this tradition. Adventurers, criminals, eccentrics, rogue politicians and other scandalous types all come to life in the pages of Scoundrels and Scallywags.
Meet Bill Peyto, the legendary mountain man who once let a lynx loose in a saloon to see how quickly the drunks could escape. Or Calgary's notorious prostitute Pearl Miller, who left such an impression with Canadian soldiers in the Second World War that they responded to the American sign "Remember Pearl Harbor" with "To hell with Pearl Harbour, remember Pearl Miller". Or Elizabeth Sweaty Betty Abbott, an Edmonton slum landlord known for punching out abusive husbands and taking care of their battered wives. Or the reluctant Lord, Fred Perceval, who inherited the title Earl of Egmont but decided after living in his English castle for a few years that he really wanted to be a rancher after all.
