    Summary

    The year is 1875, and Louis Riel is exiled for crimes against the government of Canada. The railroad heads west, and Manitoba is finally surveyed and properly blocked off into little boxes for Ottawa.
    In the winter of 1876, Sir John A. Macdonald is advised of the shift of public opinion. A passionate series of letters to the newspapers is inciting the Quebecois, lighting a rebellious fire in their eyes. It’s just shy of ninety years since the French revolted in Europe, but it is not far from the minds of the Senate or Legislature when their resident French population’s blood is stirring so patriotically in their veins.
    Under duress, Sir John A. Macdonald calls on the one man he knows can make any revolution fail--former MP Louis Riel.
    Louis Riel accepts too eagerly, heading straight into Ottawa, and arrives in Macdonald’s office at gunpoint.

    I read excerpts of this to my Canadian housemate. He made audible sounds of pain repeatedly. A++, would recommend.

    Summary

    The hard version is hard because there isn't--he doesn't think there's a word for it. If there is he doesn't know it. Nothing holds the enormity of what he's done. Nothing in the world of people. At the bottom of the ocean, maybe, all darkness and weight. Or beyond: in space, beyond the gravitational pull of the sun, where it is airless and frozen. Past the limits, in places no one has ever had to name because no one could see them and live.

    Or: Bucky is Bruce's lab assistant, more or less.
