About this product
- DescriptionNon-fiction authority Myrna Kostash merges the past and the present in The Frog Lake Reader, which offers a startlingly objective perspective on the tragic events surrounding the Frog Lake Massacre of 1885. By bringing together eyewitness accounts and journal excerpts, memoirs and contemporary fiction, and excerpts from interviews with historians, Kostash provides a paramic perspective on a tragedy often overshadowed by Louis Riel's rebellion during the same year. The history is contentious and its interpretation unresolved, but The Frog Lake Reader , with its broad survey of vital historical accounts and points of view, offers the most comprehensive and informative narrative on the Frog Lake Massacre to date.
