Samuel Benfield Steele

Hello!

My name is Samuel Benfield Steele. I was one of the first to join the North West Mounted Police, back in 1873. I stayed with the Mounted Police for 40 years. By the time I retired, I had served across Canada, even in the Yukon.

Do I have stories to tell! The places I have seen, and the people that I have met! Let me tell you some of these stories and introduce you to some interesting characters as we travel together on Canada's greatest adventure - the March West.
