    "Gracefully written, fully and meticulously researched." -- Sharon Butala, author of The Perfection of the Morning. "Frontier Farewell offers new perspectives on everything from the transfer of Rupert's Land to Canada, the Manitoba Resistance of 1869-70, and the Numbered Treaties of the 1870s, to the surveys of the Canadian Prairies, the coming of the North-West Mounted Police, and the fallout from the Battle of the Little Big Horn." -- Ted Binnema, Department of History, University of Northern British Columbia. "Frontier Farewell has energy and glory." -- The StarPhoenix. "Wilson...writes with great elegance and clarity." -- James A. Hanson, Museum of the Fur Trade Quarterly. Frontier Farewell "ends with the disastrous bloodletting--the gruesome unwinding of a two-hundred-year experiment." -- Lionel Hughes, Prairies North
