A lot of Mounties and former Mounties turned their talents to writing and Sgt. Kendall was one of them.
After serving in the Boer War in South Africa, Kendall found his way to Maple Creek, Saskatchewan in 1902. He joined the RNWMP in 1905 and served under Col. Sanders at Calgary. He left the force in 1910 after serving in Banff and Lake Louise.
He joined the Calgary City Police Force mounted unit in 1911, was promoted to Sergeant and was in charge of the unit until it was disbanded in 1924.
His first novel, "Benton of the Mounted" was number 3 on the Canadian best seller list in 1918. His second novel, "Luck of the Mounted", published in 1920, was also quite popular. As far as I know, both are out of print, but are available at the University Library ("Luck of the Mounted" is in Special Collections so you can't take it out).
