LORD OF THE PLAINS.
Edition: First printing, a trade paperback original.
New York: Ballantine, (1990). First edition - Historical novel set in Canada. "When Gabriel and Madelaine Dumont settle along the Saskatchewan, no land office exists to register their claims. But by the mid-1880s, railroad and telegraph lines have brought the Ottawa administration closer--and the government is selling land occupied by Indians and early settlers. Enlisting the help of Louis Riel (leader of an earlier uprising and a religious visionary), the settlers and Indians stage the Great Northwest Rebellion, pitting their knowledge of the plains against the Canadian police's superior numbers, heavy artillery and Gatling machine guns." Author's note, maps. 406 pp. ISBN: -345356004.
