The Badger Riot

Description | Excerpt | Launch Info | Resources | Memorabilia

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 J. R. 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.
