Notes: This is the French translation of Strange Empire: Louis Riel and the Métis people. The book is both a biography of Riel and a study of the causes and events of the Resistances of 1869-70 and 1885. Howard emphasised the culture, lore and social organizations of the Indians and Métis. The book was extensively researched, but was written without footnotes in order to appeal to the general reader.
