Aboard The Boundless: Sam Steele


Sam Steele, the first Mountie
 
(Actually he was the third to be sworn in, but no one knows about the first two.)
 
An officer of the newly formed Northwest Mounted Police, he is asked to keep law and order on the maiden voyage of The Boundless, With so many people aboard, from all walks of life, this is no small feat. But Steele is more than up to the task. He's a mountain of a man, and conveys unassailable authority.
 
Steele may be the closest thing we have to a Canadian Action Hero. He marches across the country, parlays with Sitting Bull, battles Big Bear, keeps law and order in the Klondike during the Gold Rush, and fights in the Boer War.
 
But before any of that, he meets Will Everett on the maiden voyage of The Boundless.
