Sawney's Letters, or, Cariboo Rhymes from 1864 to 1868 RG 216
James Anderson (1838?-1923) was born in Perthshire, Scotland. In 1863 he was lured by the gold rush to Cariboo. While unsuccessful at gold minging his claim to fame were the poems and narratives he published and presented as part of the Cariboo Amateur Dramatic Association. James Anderson left Cariboo in November, 1871 and returned to Scotland. He later moved to England where he died in 1923.
