Although I knew that some prisoners were held in federal parks, I was stunned to learn what kind and how many. Much of the work done in building things like hot pools, and wharves were completed by prisoners from war, homelessness, and political. This volume gives an insider''s view to this situation and includes rare photographs. Most of the parks used were from Western Canada by design of the government but were unprepared in many cases to handle the scores of men that came West not by choice but by chance.
