About the Author

Barbara Smith was born and raised in Toronto and lived most of her life in Edmonton before settling in the Victoria area in 2006. Barbara is a full-time writer whose work is inspired by a love of mystery combined with her lifelong interest in social history. She has published over thirty books, twenty of which are collections of true ghost stories, including Campfire Stories of Western Canada, The Mad Trapper and perennial bestsellers Ghost Stories of Alberta, Ghost Stories and Mysterious Creatures of British Columbia, Ghost Stories of the Rocky Mountains and Canadian Ghost Stories. Barbara was also featured on the Discovery Channel's Hunt for the Mad Trapper.


Nellie McClung (1873–1951) was a Canadian feminist, politician, author, and activist best known for her role in the women’s suffrage movement and the successful overturning of the law that failed to recognize women as persons eligible to sit in the Senate. McClung and four other women—Henrietta Muir Edwards, Emily Murphy, Louise McKinney and Irene Parlby—came to be known as "The Famous Five" or "The Valiant Five” for their fight for the equal rights of women. After leaving politics, McClung went on to have a long and successful career as a bestselling author and journalist.
