From the back cover:

''Louis Riel, the compelling leader of the Métis, hanged by Sir John A. MacDonald's government in 1885, sits at the core of the Canadian national imagination. Among partisans, he is either a poltroon or a prophet, politically adept or an inept fool. He was a visionary, and a very interesting poet, full of rancor and tenderness, self-pity and dignity. This is the first selection of his poetry to be published in both French and English.''
