Slumach’s Gold chronicles what is possibly Canada’s greatest lost-mine story. It searches out the truth behind a Salish man’s hanging for murder in 1891, and tracks the birth and growth of a legend: the man’s death turned into a drama of international fascination when Slumach-the hanged criminal-was mysteriously linked to gold nuggets “the size of walnuts.” According to legend, Slumach placed a curse on his hidden motherlode just prior to his death.
