"It has the thoroughness of a history book yet reads with the personalized vision of a novel." -Time

Chester Brown reinvents the comic-book medium to create the critically acclaimed historical biographyLouis Riel, winning the Harvey Awards for best writing and best graphic novel for his compelling, meticulous, and dispassionate retelling of the charismatic, and perhaps insane, nineteenth-century Métis leader. Brown coolly documents with dramatic subtlety the violent rebellion on the Canadian prairie led by Riel, who some regard a martyr who died in the name of freedom, while others consider him a treacherous murderer.

CHESTER BROWN is the author ofI Never Liked You,The Little Man,The Playboy, andYummy Fur. He lives in Toronto; he is an illustrator forThe New York Times MagazineandThe New Yorker.
