Book Description

June 1 2009 Amazing Stories

These inspiring true stories illuminate the courage and wisdom of five 19th-century Native leaders and famous Métis who fought against impossible odds to preserve the culture and rights of their people. The visionary Cree leader Big Bear sought peace and a better life, only to be hunted mercilessly and imprisoned unjustly. Jerry Potts, the legendary North West Mounted Police guide and interpreter, helped smash the whisky trade and negotiate treaties. Persevering through sorrow and defeat, brave and steadfast men such as these left a lasting mark on Aboriginal culture and the history of western Canada.

From the Back Cover

These tales of bravery, courage, and decisive action in times of terrible conflict are the stories of heroes. Although the lives of the Native chiefs and famous Metis were often tinged with sadness and loss, they were also an inspiration. Jam-packed with adventures and battles, these tales ultimately tell of the negotiations, broken promises, and harsh realities of the changing face of the West. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
