The Lady at BatochePaperback - 1999
Winner of the 1999 Saskatchewan Book Award for Young Adult Fiction
The Lady at Batoche is a story of three young people who are changed forever by the brutal simplicities of battle. It shares the same meticulous research and vivid recreation of history as Soldier Boys but also answers some puzzling riddles of the M#65533;tis rebellion: why did Gabriel Dumont put such faith in the unworldly visions of Louis Riel? Why were the implacable enemies, Dakota and Cree warriors, both on the M#65533;tis side? And how did the M#65533;tis get outflanked by General Middleton's forces?
