This book chronicles the adventures and achievements of some of the most colourful, ambitious people of their time statesmen, scoundrels, visionaries and developers. Participants all in the growing oil patch! The author presents a highly readable, informative and entertaining account of the early years in the development of Canada's gas and oil industry. Based upon five years of research, interviews, and his fortuitous discovery of a rare, historically important scribbler, John Schmidt traces the paths of two enterprising American-born drillers, 'Frosty' Martin and 'Tiny' Phillips, whose drive and ingenuity were encouraged by British and Canadian promoters and financiers. Their entrepreneurial spirit took them initially to Leamington, Ontario and ultimately, into the heart of the oil patch in Western Canada.
