In October 1935, three Doukhobor farm boys embarked on a violent trail of robbery and murder that stretched from Manitoba to Alberta.  By the time the spree ended near Banff, seven people were dead, including the fugitives and four law-enforcement officers.  For the next 70 years, these “farm-boy killers” held the distinction of being the RCMP’s deadliest adversaries, yet many questions about the shocking case remained unanswered.  This gripping narrative reveals surprising new details about the impact of the Great Depression on the young killers and the lawmen who faced them down.
