Be The First To Review - The Ballad Of Jean Baptiste: A Short Story Of The Red River Metis Kindle Edition.
Jean Baptiste Malaterre is a hunter and a soldier, a husband and a leader, but he has a secret that is destroying his standing within his community and within his own family.
Based on an actual event from the days before modern-day Canada was established, the author, Jason Payet, has created a fast-paced short story as a glimpse into the life of a man whose place in history deserves a greater appreciation than the account of his life that has been passed down over the generations.
Malaterre struggles with choices and attempts to deal with a threat to his people and, in the end, he rises above the discord to provide for his family.
