In Sept. of 1861, frustrated by the refusal of native communities, including especially the Haida, to submit for rule by the foreign power that he represented, "Hyas Tyee" James Douglas of the "Yaatsxaaydagaay" at "Micdolly" turned to, in his words, "injustice and cruelty." This book documents Gov. Douglas' resort to injustice and cruelty, especially in the Crown's relationship with the Haida, and Francis Poole's career as a foot soldier delivering cruelty to the Haida, Tsilhqot'in and Nuxalk.
