Outcasts Of River Falls
Wanted Dead Or Alive!
Can They Catch The Canadian Robin Hood?
After the death of her parents, Kathryn must go to live with
her Aunt Belle in Alberta. But a shock is in store for this well-bred
young Toronto lady. Arriving at Pincher Creek, Kathryn is horrified
to learn her new home is a group of shacks called River Falls,
a Métis community.
Never having known her true heritage, Kathryn is further shocked
to discover it's not even a permanent home. Barred from owning land,
the Métis must find a way to live in the road allowances,
or ditches – the strips of government land between the public highway
and the private properties of recognized citizens.
Excitement comes in the form of a mysterious stranger known as
the Highwayman, a shadowy Robin Hood figure who rights wrongs
against the Métis people in his own way. When he is framed for a crime
he did not commit, and Aunt Belle becomes involved, Kathryn must use
all her resources to prove their innocence – and challenge
the deep-seated beliefs of an entire community.
Outcasts of River Falls is the sequel to the award-winning Belle of Batoche.
