Description

Step back in time to 1885 with volume three of the award-winning A Girl Called Echo graphic novel series, from best-selling author Katherena Vermette

Echo Desjardins just can't stop slipping back and forth in time.

In Northwest Resistance, Echo travels to 1885, a period of turmoil. The bison are gone, settlers from the East are arriving daily, and the Métis and First Nations of the Northwest face hunger and uncertainty as their traditional way of life is threatened. The Canadian government has ignored their petitions, but hope rises when Louis Riel returns to help. However, battles between Canadian forces and the Métis and their allies lead to defeat at Batoche. Through it all, Echo gains new perspectives about where she came from and what the future may hold.

Editorial Reviews

This book, along with so many others that HighWater Press publishes, [is] fantastic. The melding of history and fantasy that focus on Own Voices is something the publisher does beautifully.

Henderson’s lifelike illustrations are striking and filled with raw emotion. Yaciuk’s infused colour-work further elevates this historical account. This is a well-conceived story, which links the past to the present. A tremendous way for teens to learn history
