"This new book by George and Terry Goulet is one
of the best comprehensive overviews available on Metis history. It's an excellent reference
on all things Metis - easy to read and very well
organised. The authors combine good narrative writing with historic detail. As an introduction
to Metis history, or for those intent on finding out more about the origins of our people,
this book is recommended."

Praise for the authors' previous
book The Trial of Louis Riel,
Justice and Mercy Denied
"George Goulet ... has
brought polish and wisdom to the classic tale of Louis Riel."
- Metis Voyageur
"The Trial of Louis Riel
is an impressive new and essential guide to the Riel affair. This book
offers readers a comprehensive understanding of the legal aspects of the
case, which until now have been skimmed over by historians. The book also
proves that Riel was the victim of the government of John A. Macdonald."
- Martin Bisaillon, M.A.,
Historian and Researcher
"Many thanks for your
ground breaking work."
- David G.
Doyle, Political Scientist and Author
"... your study of the
Louis Riel trial ... I have found it to be quite captivating."
