A summary of Stanley's major work The birth of western Canada (Shortt FC3215 .S78B). He maintains his thesis that the Riel Resistances were not a continuation of the traditional hostilities of eastern Canada, but an attempt on the part of a primitive people to stop the advance of civilisation. He concludes that the métis will always see Riel as a prophet and champion and believes that most other Canadians now share this view. (Another copy available in Pamphlet XXXII-16)
