BOOKS - French-Canadians of the West: a Biographical Dictionary of French-Canadians and French Métis of the western United States and Canada - 3 Volumes
"Based on a translation of Dictionnaire historique des Canadiens et des Métis français de l'Ouest, by Reverend A.G. Morice O.M.I."

In almost 650 individual biographies, it is a mosaic of French Canadian and Metis accomplishments, discoveries and legacies left by some of the first people to forge across North America, extending their exploits and influence to the Pacific Northwest, the desert southwest, the frozen tundra of the Arctic and the wide banks of the Mississippi.
