The book is both a biography of Riel and a study of the causes and events of the Resistances of 1869-70 and 1885. A great deal of emphasis is also placed on the culture, lore and social organizations of the Indians and Métis. Howard carried out extensive research, but the book is written without notes to appeal to the general reader.
