Heroes. . . Rogues. . . Adventures all! Twelve amazing Saskatchewan men and women. Saskatchewan has contributed its share of vibrant characters to the national and world stages. Some are well documented. Others, undeservedly, are less well known. The qualities that link the extraordinary people in Saskatchewan Heroes and Rogues, who represent all shades of moral character, are audacity, an unfailing belief in their own convictions, the unquenchable will to survive adversity. All to some extent defied the conventions of the day. Few of these lives are blighted by the poignancy of missed opportunities or roads not taken.Writer-researcher Ruth Millar tells twelve stories that illustrate the wonderful variety, ingenuity, courage, and the sometimes waywardness of the Saskatchewan character, including: Norman Falkner, the famous one-legged figure skater Kathleen Rice, daring lady prospector "Two-Gun" Cohen, who became an advisor to Sun Yat-sen Joan Bamford Fletcher, who led 2,000 survivors out of a WWII prison camp Richard St. Barbe Baker, internationally famous "Man of the Trees" Emma Woikin, small-town girl turned spy Big Tom Hourie, who swam the icy South Saskatchewan
