Much of his information came from former servants of the Hudson's Bay Company. Cameron wrote The War Trail of Big Bear, an account of his experiences during the Frog Lake incident of 1885.
The article describes the formation of two companies of volunteer cavalry at Duck Lake under the designation of the North West Mounted Rifles.
