This is a reprint of the account of two women who were among eighty hostages held by Plains Cree in 1885 after the infamous Frog Lake Massacre. Sarah Carter's new introduction provokes a careful reconsideration of texts such as "Two Months," texts that are often uncritically assumed to be unproblematic and accurate reflections of events such as those at Frog Lake in the spring of 1885. Carter challenges the reader to pay attention to the perspectives of the many others who were involved in order to construct a more varied, more complicated and more truthful picture of the past.
