The year’s 1870. Winnipeg has no lawyers, no City Council, no taxes – nothing but freedom.
Pierre Dumont’s your name, and you’re a Métis hunter from east of Red River. You’re tolerably virtuous and unmistakably happy.
This morning, you were surprised by a party of soldiers on their way to Winnipeg. They accept to stay overnight, and Canadian Whiskey flows. You learn from their loose tongues that the government plans on ceasing the free Red River.
You must act; you must tell Métis leader Louis Riel.
