What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

This book makes a crucial contribution to Metis studies and to literature on state formation. Bringing to the fore the important role of the border and the unique problems and solutions tied to race making at the time, this book is an important and noteworthy read.—Gerhard Ens, University of Alberta

Sarah Carter University of Alberta

The complexity of this history is daunting, yet it could not be in more capable and confident hands. On one level, Michel Hogue's study constitutes a rigorous analysis of the Metis as a borderland people. But it is also a micro-history of families and individuals who are vividly brought to life--a demonstration of how the stories of the Metis people are inextricably bound to larger narratives of race and nation.
