The Badger Riot is my first book. It grew from a short story I wrote during the
fall of 2004 and over the past four years the characters
have become dear to me.
This is a book primarily about the people of a small
town who get caught up in events bigger than they are.
Many characters, such as Ralph, Jennie, Tom, and Vern are
completely fictitious, although the events are true and
accurate as I witnessed and as many others have related
to me during conversations. As well, you will find mention of historical figures such as
Smallwood, then Premier of Newfoundland, H. Landon Ladd, IWA organizer, and of course Constable William Moss of
the Newfoundland Constabulary.
I would also like to take the opportunity to thank
all those who contributed. Without you the writing of
this book would not have been possible.
