I bought this book of poetry in Calgary at the Writers' Guild of Alberta Conference It appealed to me because I wanted to learn about the Frog Lake Massacre Sadly I didn't learn as much as I wanted to from this book but it did spark my interest and enticed me to do my own research about this tragic event in Canadian history My favorite poem is on page 103 titled Crowfoot Chief of the Blackfoot like a dark Duke of Wellington in the house of the 'white' chief with one eye open as they called Jingo from his watchfulness and his eye glass Yes a long title The book cover is wonderful A fascinating poetic view of the Louis Riel rebellion Uses a lot of found texts to tell the story Very well done This book does a good job of combining poetry and history However after revisiting it and reading work based in history I have adjusted my review
