Blood Red the Sun [The War Trail of Big Bear]
In the 1920s Cameron published a novel, The War Trail of Big Bear, which told the story of his captivity at the hands of Big Bear’s Renegades in the spring of 1885 after the Frog Lake Massacre. In the mid-1940s, Cameron revised The War Trail of Big Bear and had it republished under a new name, Blood Red the Sun, his family later attempting to have a further edition published in the 1970s.
