From the back cover:
" Red Sun: Gabriel Dumont the Folk Hero upturns generations of Eurocentric scholarship and properly restores Dumont's indigeneity. In this timely book, Thompson presents the reader with the concept of Gabriel Dumont, the "Brayoo" and the "Valorous Worthy" who selflessly served his fellow Métis and other Indigenous peoples within the context of the Nehiyaw-Pwat (Cree-Assiniboine) alliance. Based on decades of research and on dozens of oral history interviews with Dumont family members and extended kin, the author deftly melds oral histories, legends and traditional stories which portray Gabriel Dumont in a new refreshing light. This is an innovative, highly memorable book about the "greatest Métis hero of them all".
