    Too short; I hope the next vol. is longer. Beautiful illustration, particularly when it comes to the coloring. ...

    So far this looks to be an excellent story with wonderful artistry that captures the struggle with Indigenous identity and history that many Indigenous people feel. The biggest complaint I have is that this first volume is too short since the story pulls you right in and leaves you wan...

    Pemmican Wars, the first graphic novel in the series A Girl Called Echo, introduces us to thirteen-year-old Echo, who is largely invisible in her classes and lives apart from her mother. The novel is rich with vivid artwork, and the author has clearly prioritized representation in her ...

    Echo, a Métis girl, finds herself in a new school, a new home, and away from her mother. When she begins learning Métis history in one of her classes, she finds herself living the history, as if transported through time. The first book in the series offers readers a glimpse into Echo...

    This was an interesting way to present history and I hope the next issue focuses more on Echo herself. ...

    This graphic novel exceeded my expectations. I thought the story was unique and very well done as the beginning of a series - it was not nearly long enough and I can't wait to read the next one! ...

    Too short; I hope the next vol. is longer. Beautiful illustration, particularly when it comes to the coloring. ...

    So far this looks to be an excellent story with wonderful artistry that captures the struggle with Indigenous identity and history that many Indigenous people feel. The biggest complaint I have is that this first volume is too short since the story pulls you right in and leaves you wan...

    Echo, a Métis girl, finds herself in a new school, a new home, and away from her mother. When she begins learning Métis history in one of her classes, she finds herself living the history, as if transported through time. The first book in the series offers readers a glimpse into Echo...

    It's a little too short of a read but a powerful start to a series. Illustrations were great and I loved the addition of Echo's Mom's Old CD's playlist. I re-created the playlist to listen to as I followed the story. I own most of the songs, so I appreciated the added touch. I hope the...

    The dialog was sparse but the story was well conveyed and Echo's struggle easy to see. An interesting way to present the Metis history of the Pemmican wars. It will be interesting to see how the story progresses in the next volume. ...

    Beautiful illustrations. Looking forward to Volume 2. ...

    Quick graphic novel that raises awareness of the history of Pemmican Wars. I would have loved to see the history in the graphic story...left me wanting more. ...

    This graphic novel exceeded my expectations. I thought the story was unique and very well done as the beginning of a series - it was not nearly long enough and I can't wait to read the next one! ...

    Too short; I hope the next vol. is longer. Beautiful illustration, particularly when it comes to the coloring. ...

    So far this looks to be an excellent story with wonderful artistry that captures the struggle with Indigenous identity and history that many Indigenous people feel. The biggest complaint I have is that this first volume is too short since the story pulls you right in and leaves you wan...

    Pemmican Wars by Katherena Vermette, illustrated by Scott B. Henderson, colour by Donovan Yaciuk Portage & Main Press HighWater Press Teens & YA Pub Date 01 Mar 2018 I am reviewing a copy of Pemmican Wars through Portage and Main Press and Netgalley: In this ...

    Pemmican Wars, the first graphic novel in the series A Girl Called Echo, introduces us to thirteen-year-old Echo, who is largely invisible in her classes and lives apart from her mother. The novel is rich with vivid artwork, and the author has clearly prioritized representation in her ...

    Echo, a Métis girl, finds herself in a new school, a new home, and away from her mother. When she begins learning Métis history in one of her classes, she finds herself living the history, as if transported through time. The first book in the series offers readers a glimpse into Echo...

    It's a little too short of a read but a powerful start to a series. Illustrations were great and I loved the addition of Echo's Mom's Old CD's playlist. I re-created the playlist to listen to as I followed the story. I own most of the songs, so I appreciated the added touch. I hope the...

    The dialog was sparse but the story was well conveyed and Echo's struggle easy to see. An interesting way to present the Metis history of the Pemmican wars. It will be interesting to see how the story progresses in the next volume. ...

    Beautiful illustrations. Looking forward to Volume 2. ...

    Quick graphic novel that raises awareness of the history of Pemmican Wars. I would have loved to see the history in the graphic story...left me wanting more. ...

    Great story and beautiful illustration! ...
