Canada 150 - Sergeant Preston of the Yukon





During our country's 150th anniversary celebration of confederation I will write posts titled Canada 150 with a link to a publication or website I find that may help you tell the story of your Canadian ancestors.
Click on the Canada 150 label on the right or at the bottom to see all the posts.

Today I have for you...


Sergeant Preston, RCMP, and his dog, Yukon King




This is just a fun one. Even though they were written and produced in the United States, the stories take place in the Canadian Yukon.  If you remember them from your childhood or even if you are new to Sergeant Preston, you might want to take a look.

Sergeant Preston of the Yukon was a radio program that first aired in 1938 as Challenge of the Yukon.



Then Sergeant Preston entered the realm of comic books and TV. The stories take place during the Gold Rush days of the 1890s.  I don't know how accurate the details are, but the TV episodes are short, fun to watch, and remind me of my childhood.
