An interesting account of the early life of Edward Mallandaine (1867-1949) who worked as a teamster hauling the Royal Mail and other consignments between Salmon Arm and Revelstoke during the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway. He is the 18 year old youth peering from behind Sir Donald Smith's top hat in the famous photograph of the driving of the last spike. This chronicle is complimented with several maps, numerous black and white photographs, a bibliography, and an index.
