Author Bio for Cameron, William Bleasdell

William Bleasdell Cameron (1862-1951) was a Canadian journalist. Born in Trenton, Ontario, he went to the Red River Colony in 1881. When the North-West Rebellion broke out in 1885 he was in charge of the Hudson's Bay Post in Frog Lake. The Cree Indians under Chief Big Bear attacked the village and killed 9 residents. Bleasdell was the only survivor. After being held captive for two months he was released and then he worked as a scout for the Canadian army. He chronicled his experience in The War Trail of Big Bear. Later on he became editor of a town newspaper in Vermilion, Alberta. (Macmillan Dictionary of Canadian Biography)
