This book is the first about Angelique, a young Metis girl, in the Our Canadian Girl series. The Our Canadian girl books are about young fictional Canadian girls during different periods in history.

It's 1865. Ten-year-old Angelique Dumas and her family are Metis, descended from French traders and the prairie natives. Most of the year, the Dumas family lives on a small farm. But twice a year, they join other Metis families for a large buffalo hunt. Now that Angelique is ten, she will have new re
Interesting story of a young Metis girl and her experiences during her first real buffalo hunt.

I just cannot express my love for all Our Canadian Girl books! Angelique's story had great examples of a beautiful family/community bond and a bold leading lady. Always recommend Our Canadian Girl books for anyone at the age of 12 or if you're 22, like me, that's okay too!
