Rate this:
There is a breed of man who never settles, can't stop running, doesn't fit in. Such men thrive on adventure and the freedom of vast, open spaces. Johnny Conrad Johnson was one such desperado, a man who defied a combined force of trappers and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in a forty-eight-day running battle along the Arctic Circle. He engaged in four shoot-outs with his pursuers, before being fatally wounded on February 17, 1932. Dick North, the award-winning author of The Mad Trapper of Rat River, re-creates Johnson's life story, a chronicle of robberies and escapes through the wilderness of North America, all leading up to one of the most famous manhunts in history.
