The Dangers of Dave's World

I discovered on the Internet that in 2000, Jay S. Jones, submitted a thesis with the title The Cleansing Time at Simon Fraser University, for his MA degree. The thesis is available in pdf format on the Internet. Click here to read or download the 118 pages.

Thanks for this link. I felt at the time of the controversy that the Maple Ridge Museum didn't get a fair shake. Dave is an impressive storyteller and all the world loves a storyteller. The difference is in whether or not one requires the stories to be true. If I had a nickel for every time a person told me they had Klondike Kate's trunk ... well, the woman must have had more trunks than Imelda had shoes.
