        Banff’s Jimmy Simpson was many things during his life: hunter, guide, practical joker, art and book lover, poacher and remittance man. In fact, historian and author Mark Zuehlke, in his recently re-released book Scoundrels, Dreamers & Second Sons: British Remittance Men in the Canadian West, sees Simpson as the archetypal remittance man.   Praise for Scoundrels, Dreamers & Second Sons! ← Back to Book Main Page Praise for Scoundrels, Dreamers & Second Sons “It will make an entertaining summer read, especially for readers who live in some of the communities across the west where the remittance men had their brief turn on the Canadian stage.”.
