(From the publisher):
A bugle boy stows away on a train, dreaming of glory, to help fight the Metis rebels. A Metis boy takes his father's gun and enlists as a scout to spy on the English camp. In a steep coulee, off the South Saskatchewan River, they meet face to face in the Battle of Fish Creek. The Battle, in 1885, was a turning point in Canada's history. An impeccably researched, wonderfully dramatic novel of the Riel Rebellion and those who put it down.
