Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: "The winter of 1932–33 saw the small interior town of Princeton, BC divided. Charges of outside agitators and charges by mounted provincial police into picket lines of workers, Ku Klux Klan threats and a beating and cross–burning, the kidnapping of legendary labour organizer Slim Evans who was bundled onto the next train out of town (though he returned soon enough) ––– Princeton's few thousand citizens saw much of the human drama of the Great Depression play out right in their own lives over the course of just a few months."--
