RCMP/NWMP History

I'm thinking of writing a time-travel story, so to research it, I'll need info on the Mounties in particular, and life in the NWT in general, in the 1890's. 

So far I've got this official history from the RCMP's website, and I ordered this book, which is very nearly the only book on RCMP history I could find that doesn't cost a small fortune.  (Since I'm not teaching at the moment, I don't have access to any academic libraries, which sucks big time.) 

I suspect the official history page may be a bit whitewashed, so sources that problematize that portrayal would be especially helpful, as would info on what day-to-day life would have been like, but any and all sources that may be of use will be gratefully received!
