Abstract:

"William Henry Jackson was born an Anglo-Saxon Methodist in Southern Ontario. Leaving behind that identity, he served as Louis Riel's secretary during the 1885 Resistance, narrowly avoiding lengthly imprisonment.

Along the way, he adopted the name Honore Jaxon, and assumed a prairie Metis identity." -- from publisher.
