    schema:description ""The Canadian Rangers stand sentinel in the farthest reaches of our country. For six decades, this dedicated group of citizen-soldiers has quietly served as Canada's eyes, ears, and voice in isolated coastal and northern communities. How does this minimally trained and lightly equipped force make a meaningful contribution to national defence and to sustainable communities? One of Canada's leading experts on northern issues answers this question using official records, extensive interviews, and on-the-ground participation in Ranger exercises from coast to coast to coast. The Canadian Rangers also tells the untold story of a successful partnership that has developed between the Canadian Forces and Aboriginal peoples, a partnership rooted in traditional knowledge and skills and characterized by acceptance and crosscultural understanding. P. Whitney Lackenbauer is an associate professor and chair of the Department of History at St. Jerome's University"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
