Leaving behind that identity, he served as Louis Riel's secretary during the 1885 Resistance, narrowly avoiding lengthly imprisonment. Escaping an asylum for the insane, he went on to become a prominent labour leader in Chicago, finally trying his hand as a real estate developer in New York City. Along the way, he adopted the name Honore Jaxon, and assumed a prairie Metis identity." -- from publisher.
