The Countess Mountbattens Own Legion of Frontiersmen was conceived and organized in 1905 as a body of frontier sentinels, and they first published The Frontiersmans Pocket-Book in 1909 as their training and survival manual. Long out-of-print, copies command steep prices in the antiquarian book market. This facsimile edition of the Pocket-Book features documents, photographs, and maps drawn from the University of Albertas Bruce Peel Special Collections Librarys Sir Samuel Steele Collection, and also includes the papers of Roger Pocock (18651941), founder of the Frontiersmen as well as the compiler and editor of the Pocket-Book. More than a mere historic curiosity, The Frontiersmans Pocket-Book remains a useful, if dated, guide to living and working in the bush, or even for conducting guerrilla warfare.
