The fur trade that rode the Canadian river highway from York factory to the West was dwindling, and the settlers, following the missionaries, are moving in to claim the new land.
John and Adolphe, among these early pioneers, emigrated from Scotland and France to travel west, where they meet Father Lacombe, Louis Riel, and the women who will teach them how to straddle two cultures. Métis women, fairer than the men, and uncommonly pretty, open the eyes of these voyagers, their minds, and their hearts.
"Once again, Lillian Ross has demonstrated her knowledge of and compassion for Canadian history. Mewassin: The Good Land is a clever portrayal of history through the eyes of the people who made it." - Eric J. Brown, Magnolia Press, author of Ginny & Anna
"Mewassin: The Good Land is filled with great characters, stirring events, and much history. It is a great read, and possibly her best yet!" - Charles O. Goulet, historical novelist
About the Author:
