Very good novel about Dumont, written by an anarchist: Gabriel Dumont in Paris by Jordan Zinovich (University of Toronto, 1999). Another interesting figure from the North West Rebellion is Honore Jaxon, who was sent to an insane asylum after the rebellion, escaped into the US, championed the Metis cause, befriended Voltairine de Cleyre, campaigned for the Haymarket defendants, and was later a radical organizer for the Western Federation of Miners in western Canada. Good bio: Honore Jaxon: Prairie Visionary by Donald Smith (Coteau Books, 2007). Also mentioned in the Haymarket Scrapbook.
