Summary, etc.:
"Filmed on location in the Fraser Canyon, British Columbia, Canada, the Canyon War sheds light on a shadowy chapter of Canadian history. Stories of villages in flames, bodies floating down river, and American militias killing and looting as desperate First Nations tries to hold back tens of thousands of rapacious gold seekers flooding into their land. This isn't America's Wild West - it is British Columbia in 1858." -- Container.
