The renegade Metis sons of a brutal white fur trader try to start a race war in 1870s British Columbia, fifteen years after their father was killed fighting the Chilcotin War.
There were four of them - three
brothers and their best friend. The oldest was 24, the
youngest 14. It was the ‘wild west’ of 1879.
Bored, angry and alienated by a society that had no
place for them, they began to lash back. It was minor
stuff at first, but slowly events spun right out of
control, until a police constable and another man lay
dead. Now they were murderers on the run. But for a
few giddy days, they convinced themselves they were
revolutionaries, freedom fighters for the dispossessed.
They began to build an army, only to watch it fall apart.
Deserted by their last allies, they were pinned down
in a remote cabin by 100 men with guns. After a three-day
siege, they surrendered and were committed for trial.
After a perfunctory trial they were condemned to death
and duly changed.
