Cosley, Trapper and the Guide Extraordinary: Part 1
By Julia Nelson, Mountain View, Alberta
‘After an eight-day search through the northern wilds of Saskatchewan, Constable J. McLeod and his Indian guide entered a trapper’s log cabin 400 miles north of Prince Albert. This was on October 12, 1944. They found that Joe Clarence Cosley had dramatized his own miserable death as fully and effectively as he had his 74 years of vibrant, enthusiastic living.’
