Marie-Anne: The Extraordinary Life of Louis Riel’s Grandmother
McClelland & Stewart, hard cover edition, October 2008.
“Siggins’ newest book is far from just a sober account of a pioneer life – it bursts with memorable, sometimes humorous, anecdotes…A worthy spinoff of Riel and a robust read about an adventurous Canadian woman pioneer of the 19th Century.
