Rebel Women of the Gold Rush

Deadly Women of Ontario

"It wasn't until Mary was led to the scaffold and the rope was placed about her neck that she cried out, as though finally realizing that she was going to hang." Women in Canada frequently got away with murder and escaped the hangman's noose. A few were not so fortunate. The first woman hanged in Upper Canada was Mary Osborn, who was executed for murdering her husband. Her gruesome story and those of seven other deadly women are told in this collection of spine-chilling tales from Ontario.
