Short Story

(Fiction, basis of Play)

 

A powerful denunciation of social injustice.

An inspirational biographical drama of a leader, patriot, and visionary.

High and unequivocal praise for Mike Mountain Horse, an admirable and courageous Indian who fought at Vimy Ridge, Hill 70, Cambrai, and Amiens in World War I and who in 1964 ended in an unmarked grave in southern Alberta, is contrasted to two prominent politicians who fought over oil money: Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and Premier Peter Lougheed.
