Description : In the spring of 1885, it appeared that war was about to set the Canadian West aflame. Louis Riel had established a Metis provisional government at Batoche, and the Cree, led by war chief Wandering Spirit, had killed settlers, taken hostages and forced the capitulation of Fort Pitt. Among the forces marshalled to quell the unrest was an elite scouting unit of the Alberta Field Force, led by the charismatic Sam Steele of the North West Mounted Police. Aggressive, tenacious and supremely confident, Steele was a seasoned policeman who had earned a reputation for getting the job done. Composed of North West Mounted Police, ex-militiamen and savvy cowboys from Calgary, Steele's Scouts relentlessly pursued the Cree warriors and their prisoners through the western Saskatchewan wilderness, acting as shock troops and often fighting at close quarters. The story of Sam Steele and his contingent is an unforgettable account of the campaign that marked the end of the Wild West on the Canadian prairies.

Description : The story of the Northwest Rebellion is synonymous with Métis leader Louis Riel, whose allies joined together in 1885 to face the military forces of the Canadian government, engaging in a civil war on the Canadian Prairies. A lesser-known element of the story is the gripping tale of river warfare along the banks of rivers in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba. In Prairie Warships: River Navigation in the Northwest Rebellion, historian Gordon E. Tolton tells of the follies and triumphs of a small prairie war that was fought using steamboats, ferries and other river craft. This was an adventure experienced at water level by warriors and soldiers on all sides—European settlers, First Nations and Métis. Richly illustrated and thoroughly researched, Prairie Warships takes readers to an era when the frontier was under siege, when prairie towns were ports of call, when a region's lifeblood depended on transport and when the mood of the river determined the fate of a nation.

Description : Born in St Boniface in 1837 of French and Indian parentage, Gabriel Dumont's childhood was spent in the Saskatchewan country, where he grew accustomed to the semi-nomadic existence of the Metis. These were the proud days of the Metis nation, when its people roamed freely throughout the Prairies. The most stable social institution was the annual buffalo hunt with its rules. When Gabriel Dumont became head of the Great Saskatchewan Hunt in 1862 the end of the nomadic lifestyle was already in sight. As the buffalo herds dwindled, the Metis began to form more permanent settlements, but were alarmed when their pleas for recognition of their land rights were ignored by Sir John A Macdonald's government. Dumont appealed to Louis Riel, leader of the Red River Rebellion. Riel spoke up for the Saskatchewan Metis, but their petitions were ignored. In 1885, the Metis took up arms against the government forces. Dumont spurred the outnumbered rebels to several victories. After the Metis defeat, Dumont fled to the United States where he spent time with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show until an amnesty was declared and he was able to return to his home.

Description : Batoche is a collection of poems by Kim Morrissey which deal with the events leading up to and surrounding the Northwest Rebellion of 1885. Kim Morrissey presents the basic facts of several well documented historical events - the Duck Lake Massacre (March 26, 1885), the skirmish at Fish Creek (April 24, 1885) and the battle at Batoche (May 9-12, 1885) which comprise the Northwest Rebellion. However, the author assumes a different perspective in retelling the story of the Metis uprising. Morrissey interprets the events through the eyes of some of their participants. Some of the characters are well-known such as Louis Riel, Gabriel Dumont and General Middleton. Others are the lesser known or the often forgotten participants of this intriguing period of history. One such individual is Marguerite Riel (Louis' wife who is usually overlooked by the history books), who is left sick and alone with two small children to raise following the hanging of her husband. From the words of an anonymous soldier in Middleton's force writing a letter to his family in eastern Canada, to an interpretation of the events through the eyes of one of Riel's children to the aftermath of the rebellion on the Batoche settlement, Batoche goes beyond the bare historical facts. Kim Morrissey has reconstructed history taking into account all the hopes and dreams of a people and the rumours and prejudices of an era.

Description : Nominee, Governor General's Literary Award for Non-Fiction This startling retelling of the North-West Rebellion explodes the myth of a grand Indian-Métis alliance and delves into the reasons why Indians have been branded as traitors and rebels in both the public imagination and official records. After the rebellion, twenty-eight reserves were officially identified as disloyal, and more than fifty Indians - including Poundmaker and Big Bear - were convicted of rebellion-related crimes. The most damning event was the mass execution of eight Indian warriors at Fort Battleford in November 1885. But Indian elders have long told stories about how First Nations remained faithful to their treaty promises during the conflict. Having their own peaceful strategies for dealing with an insensitive federal government, they were not interested in Riel's activities, and any Indian involvement was isolated, sporadic, and minimal. But Ottawa deliberately portrayed the Indians as outlaws to justify increasingly restrictive and repressive measures, an injustice that has left a lasting legacy with First Nations people. Loyal till Death is the first comprehensive look at the Indian version of the North-West Rebellion. It brings to life many personalities - particularly those of the Indian leaders, whose voices have seldom been heard in conventional histories of the Canadian West. Combining oral history and exhaustive research, and illustrated with more than one hundred archival photographs, the book sheds new light on a greatly misunderstood aspect of our past.

Description : This book tells us about the Métis, who simply wanted the long-standing boundaries of their river-lot farms respected by the government as Ottawa divided up the land to sell it to homesteaders. It tells about the Indians, whose land had been sold by the government and tradition of self-support destroyed, and who were now literally starving while the government broke its promises or tried to tie them to concessions. It tells us about local government officials, who could not agree among themselves whether the Indians should be treated with discipline or with food. It tells us about the frightened settlers and townspeople, caught between the Indians and the Métis they often sympathized with and the government they looked to for support. And it tells about the soldiers, who heroically set out to quell a rebellion, but whose greatest ordeal was the long train journey, on which they were beset by freezing cold and extreme shortages of food.

Description : After a fatal encounter between Louis Riel's Métis rebels and the North West Mounted Police at Duck Lake in March 1885, the Canadian government mobilized forces in both Ontario and Alberta to suppress what became known as "The Northwest Rebellion." The western force was assembled in Calgary by Gunner Jingo Strange, a retired major general who readily knew the right man to lead an advance unit: Samuel Benfield Steele. He called them "Steele's Scouts." Steele's Scouts patrolled through bush and swamp, under the constant threat of ambush. They were vital to the furious battles near Frenchman Butte and Loon Lake, where the scouts alone fought the Cree warriors. Their actions contributed significantly to the defeat of Canada's last rebellion. Wayne Brown, a long-time admirer of Sam Steele, knows well the landscape and rebellion battle sites of the Northwest Rebellion and has followed the trails of Steele's Scouts. With each stage of Steele's journey, Brown gives detailed directions so that history buffs or the curious can visit these heritage sites.
