I loved this book for its energy and the way it invokes the early 70s which I lived through but only realized while reading Last Gang in Town were really different And I loved the pacing and energy of Chapman's writing He's lively and remarkably unobtrusive the book is about the Clark Park gang and not him so he doesn't insert himself To be sure he had help from the surviving members of the Clark Park gang who were willing to share with him They are hysterically funny in some cases and remarkably honest about their fighting and stealing back in the day You met guys like this back then even if you weren't in their world One or two you would have been careful around but for thost part they were all right Stories like this often get lost with time so it's great that Chapman captured this little piece of a place and a time

The Last Gang in TownA riot at a Rolling Stones concert opens this compelling story of a year long confrontation in 1972 between the Vancouver police and the Clark Park gang a band of unruly characters. This book brought about a lot of memories for me because I was a part of it The facts portrayed are surprisingly accurate The memories expressed are primarily those of the gang side which is understandable in that only a few of the good guys we cops were prepared to give our side Those relatively few VPD members who did choose to speak did manage to tell it like it was however Just for your information though Mr Chapman the guy in uniform standing beside mouse in the picture was not a wagon driver he was a Dogmaster I can attest to that because it was me and I was also part of all those riots covered in the book with the exception of that at the Coliseum I missed that one because I was off duty It might also surprise you to learn that my PD partner and I were also attached to the H Suad operations We also worked undercover in an unmarked yellow Plymouth sedan and made regular late night passes through Clark Park after the curfew and made ourselves known to many of those that were there illegally Not officially of course both of us were in Plain clothes after all
