Softcover. Edith Julia Bronson married an outlaw at the beginning of the 20th century. This courageous pioneer woman bore her lawless husband, Fred Frye, 9 children, drove a freight wagon 2,000 miles from North Dakota to British Columbia on a 6yr. odyssey, endured loneliness, her husband's bootlegging, brawling, philandering and brutality, and in the end shot and killed him to protect herself and their children from his murderous rages. The sensational story hit the front pages of newspapers through B.C. This is the story, not simply of one woman's brave struggle in the wilderness, but of the pioneer spirit that opened up that wilderness for future generations. Illus., Epilogue, Sources and Index. 144pp. trade size softcover. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned pp., light shelfwear. Vg.
