About This Item

Calgary: Albertan Publishing Company 1955. (Trade paperback) 214pp. Very good. Photographs. The front cover is toned and the covers and spine are a bit worn and discolored. "This book explores new territory in Canadian history, and about two thirds of the material upon which it is based has not been examined by any previous writer. Almost the only sources used by previous writers have been the government records of the Canadian Militia engaged in suppressing the Metis and the very inaccurate reports in the newspapers of eastern Canada, which in the absence of telegraph service at that time were inadequate, rough and irregular, and mainly prejudiced" - from the Foreword. Book about Gabriel Dumont & Louis Riel. Time Period 19th Century. Locale: Batoche--Saskatchewan; Canada; Manitoba; Montana; United States. (Riel, Metis, Riel Rebellion).
