Uphold the Right, The Motto of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Today Mounties uphold the right in modern cities as well as in the furthest arctic. More than eighty years ago, a handful of them upheld the right in the face of the mightiest odds that man and wilderness can offer. Fearlessly, relentlessly, patiently they tamed outlaws, pacified and befriended Indians, and opened the Prairies and the frozen north to civilization and settlement. No on Mountie was greater than another - For they were all heroes. Beautifully illustrated, this classic tale will capture children's interest and spark their imagination inspiring a lifelong love of literature and reading.
