The night Mark Leiren-Young drove into Williams Lake, British Columbia, to work as a reporter for the venerable Williams Lake Tribune, he arrived on the scene of an armed robbery. And that was before things got weird. For a 22-year-old from Vancouver, a stint in the legendary Cariboo town was a trip to another world and another era.
Never Shoot a Stampede Queen follows the adventures of a big city (Vancouver) boy who arrives in the crime capital of BC (Williams Lake) and discovers strangers news, quirkier characters, and better friends than he ever could have imagined. He also learns about the dangers of photographing aspiring rodeo royalty.
