Description

The Battle of Batoche is the best-known confrontation between M├ętis and British soldiers in the Northwest Resistance of 1885. It remains one of Canada's most emotion-laden memories, eloquently revisited in this revised and expanded edition. The strategies of both sides are thoroughly examined, and numerous maps and photographs offer detailed description of the fateful battle. Introduction by Jean Teillet, great-grandniece of Louis Riel. Walter Hildebrandt is a historian of the Canadian Prairies and co-author of The True Spirit and Original Intent of Treaty 7, which won the Gustavus Myers Award for outstanding work on intolerance in North America in 1997.
