The Cowboy Cavalry
The Story of the Rocky Mountain RangersBook - 2011
When Native and Métis unrest escalated into the Northwest Rebellion of 1885, white settlers in southern Alberta's cattle country were terrified. Three major First Nation tribes bordered their range, and war seemed certain. In response, 114 men mustered to form the Rocky Mountain Rangers, a volunteer militia charged with ensuring the safety of the open range between the Rocky Mountains and the Cypress Hills.
