My father grew up along the Red River, and reading The Diviners made me want to learn more about Louis Riel. Kelsey delivers the facts, but in an idiosyncratic style that has charm but often confounds. The Canadian parliament decides to try and interest the partners of the St. Paul and Pacific Railroad in helping to finance the Canadian Pacific:Resulted an invitation to the syndicate to submit its terms for building a Canadian Pacific Railroad. Though influenced to accept because they all were Canadian by birth or adoption, the partners managed to control their emotion before it blinded them to the fact that the Dominions need was so urgent it was in no position to quibble.

(p. 212)The area is interesting because culturally and geographically united, it was always politically divided in three, and these partitions themselves always in flux. Rival fur companies gave way to the Hudsons Bay Company and the United States, colonizers and extractive industries, the business interests of St. Paul and the territorial lawlessness of Dakota, the francophile Metis and the Scotch and Irish, farmers and trappers and businessmen, rival rail and steamship lines.
