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.

Northwest Resistance is volume three in the graphic novel series, A Girl Called Echo.

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.
