An intelligent, carefully researched, dramatic collection of poems reconstructing history with an ear to the hopes and dreams of a people and the rumours and prejudices of an era. Kim Morrissey's Batoche brings the 1885 NorthWest Conflict between the Canadian Government and the Métis Community of Batoche vividly to life.
