"Echo Desjardins, a 13-year-old Métis girl adjusting to a new home and school, is struggling with loneliness while separated from her mother. Then an ordinary day in Mr. Bee's history class turns extraordinary, and Echo's life will never be the same. During Mr. Bee's lecture, Echo finds herself transported to another time and place--a bison hunt on the Saskatchewan prairie--and back again to the present. In the following weeks, Echo slips back and forth in time. She visits a Métis camp, travels the old fur-trade routes, and experiences the perilous and bygone era of the Pemmican Wars."--Page [4] of cover

Don't be misled by its format, this graphic novel, marketed to young adult audiences, is for anyone interested in Canadian and/or First Nations history. It's super short (I was able to read it in the course of a lunch break) so it's a good thing to pick up if you're having trouble finding time to read.
