About the Author

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. Edith Julia Bronson married an outlaw at the beginning of this century. This courageous pioneer woman bore her lawless husband, Fred Frye, nine children, drove a freight wagon 2,000 miles from North Dakota to BC on a six-year 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 BC.
