In 1920, when he was 87 years old, Peter Erasmus related the first half of his varied and eventful life to Mr. Henry Thompson, then a reporter for an Edmonton newspaper. Every detail was carefully recorded in shorthand. The result was Buffalo Days and Nights, an extraordinary first-hand account of a critical epoch in Canadian history, and a fascinating and revealing personal story told by a master story-teller. With an introduction and notes by Irene Spry.
