About the Book

The Voyageurs: Forefathers of the Metis Nation tells an old story integral to both the birth of the Metis Nation and to the development of Canada in a new engaging format. Zoey Roy has eloquently transformed the history of the voyageurs into a spoken-word performance poem which she has shared live at numerous events over the last several years. To fully appreciate Zoey's masterful delivery, a DVD to accompany this book was essential.
