Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Greater Vancouver is blessed with a delightfully raucous history, filled with whisky, brawling, gambling and countless colourful characters. Among the most colourful—and certainly among the most legendary—was Gassy Jack, businessman and scoundrel extraordinaire. His life and those of his neighbours were rife with skulduggery and rich in stories."--
