The Englishman's BoyPaperback - 2003
Links together Hollywood in the 1920's with one of the bloodiest, most brutal events of the 19th century Canadian West - the Cypress Hills Massacre. Harry Vincent, not long in the Hollywood of the 1920s, gets his big break when studio owner Damon Ira Chance asks him to find an old-time Western actor, Shorty McAdoo. Chance wants to make the definitive film about the West, and thinks McAdoo has the stories to tell. When Harry finds McAdoo, the down-on-his-luck actor does have a story. The haunting story of a drifter and his journeys through an unforgiving land and a brutal encounter with the Indians in the Cypress Hills of Saskatchewan.
