Louis Riel wrote poetry throughout his life, even while under threat of assassination, in exile, and in mental asylums. Poet and historian Michael Barnholden translates the newly discovered, unpublished poems of Riel found in a notebook belonging to Charles Sauvé--Riel either dictated the poems or Sauvé copied them from other sources. Barnholden's research and translation reveals the lasting importance of the revolutionary Louis Riel.

Louis Riel (1844-1885) was a Canadian poet, revolutionary, visionary, founder of the province of Manitoba, and leader of the Metis people.

Michael Barnholden is the author of several books of poetry and non-fiction.
