Step back in time to 1885 with volume three of the award-winning A Girl Called Echo graphic novel series, from best-selling author Katherena Vermette

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.

Katherena Vermette is a Métis writer from Treaty 1 territory, the heart of the Métis nation, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Her first book, North End Love Songs(The Muses Company) won the Governor General’s Literary Award for Poetry. Her National Film Board documentary, this river, won the 2017 Canadian Screen Award for Best Short, and her novel, The Break (House of Anansi), won the 2017 Amazon.ca First Novel Award. She holds a Master of Fine Arts from the University of British Columbia, and lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Scott Henderson (he/him/his) is author/illustrator of the sci-fi/fantasy comic, The Chronicles of Era and has illustrated select titles in the Canadian Air Force’s For Valour series and Tales From Big Spirit series, the graphic novel series 7 Generations and A Girl Called Echo, select stories in This Place: 150 Years Retold, Fire Starters, an AIYLA Honour Book, and Eisner-award nominee, A Blanket of Butterflies. In 2016, he was the recipient of the C4 Central Canada Comic Con Storyteller Award.

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
- Mighty Village

This book, along with so many others that HighWater Press publishes, [is] fantastic. The melding of history and fantasy that focus on Own Voices is something the publisher does beautifully.
- The Tiny Activist

If you are a Canadian history nerd like me, check out the third volume of A Girl Called Echo. A graphic novel that tells the story of the Northwest Resistance, while continuing Echo’s journey in modern day Winnipeg.
