THE present work tells the romantic story of the Settlement of Lord Selkirk’s Colonists in Manitoba, and is appropriate and timely in view of the Centennial celebration of this event which will be held in Winnipeg in 1912.  The author was the first, in his earlier books, to take a stand for justice to be done to Lord Selkirk as a colonizer, and he has had the pleasure of seeing the current of all reliable history turned in Lord Selkirk’s favor.
