    One thought on “Pemmican Wars (A Girl Called Echo)”

    1. Thanks to Netgalley and Portage Main Press for an advanced reader copy Publication Date March 1st, 2018A new graphic novel series that focuses on the audience learning about M tis history The illustrations are beautiful and I can see that this book is going to be a hit among educators At 48 pages, I sure wish it had been longer, but it is a great start.

    2. I only have 2 complaints I m not a fan of the art mostly the inking , but it s a styalistic preference And secondly, this was much too short It barely feels like an introduction But, the writing is strong, and the story is unique I see a lot of potential for this series, can t wait to read

    3. 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

    4. skyrosereviews 2018 ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.This is going to be a shorter review than I would normally write since this is a 50 page graphic novel rather than a full 400 page novel In its short pages, Pemmican Wars manages to combine a series of beautiful illustrations of both past and present Echo is a fantastic representation of feeling lost and disconnected from your past in a country that is at once both native to you and [...]

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

    6. 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 wanting I m looking forward to future volumes.

    9. I received an ARC from HighWater Press an imprint of Portage Main Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Wow I don t know why, but I often lump Canadian history in with the United States during the periods of wagon trains and regular buffalo bison hunting But Canada was already separate at that point, and I shouldn t underestimate their unique history This book not only taught me about a period of Canada s history that I had never heard about before, it also introduced me to a uniq [...]

    10. Pemmican Warsby Katherena Vermette, illustrated by Scott B Henderson, colour by Donovan YaciukPortage Main PressHighWater PressTeens YAPub Date 01 Mar 2018I am reviewing a copy of Pemmican Wars through Portage and Main Press and Netgalley In this beautifully Illustrated graphic novel we meet Echo a thirteen year old Metis girl who is adjusting to a new school, and to the loneliness she feels from being away from her Mother But one ordinary day in Mr Bree s history class she finds herself being t [...]

    11. 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 cast of characters Vermette incorporates history organically, teaching the reader about the Metis as Echo herself experiences pivotal moments during the Pemmican Wars The language is accessible, and the graphics are [...]

    12. I loved Katherena s novel The Break so I was interested to pick up her Graphic Novel this is the story about a young girl separated from her mother, thrown in to a new school and environment where she doesn t fit in She hears a story about Metis and the Pemmican Wars and is compelled to know about her people and her history I will absolutely pick up the further volumes and see where Echo s story goes I think it s an important story to be told about generations that are separated but still affec [...]

    13. Echo, a M tis girl, finds herself in a new school, a new home, and away from her mother When she begins learning M tis 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 s life and begins giving readers a historical context for the story The color illustrations are exquisite and bring both the story s history and Echo s loneliness to life on the page As the series continues, I look fo [...]

    14. Pemmican Wars A Girl Named Echo is a beautifully illustrated graphic novel about a thirteen year old girl adapting to a new foster home and a new school On her first day of school, Echo is sitting in her history class learning about the Pemmican Wars when she is transported to 1814 Echo begins learning about her people and the struggles they had to face and overcome.Can t wait for the next volume ARC kindly provided by the publisher and NetGalley.

    15. Echo, a Metis teenager is in a new school and missing her mother She time travels back to the time of the Pemmican wars and observes the Metis way of life and their struggles during the Battle of Frog Plains Her loneliness is compounded with the loss of her culture as she moved robotically through her days.This graphic novel promises to be a very important book, however it is very short and leaves the reader wanting at the end Looking forward to the next volume

    16. 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 next volumes continue to follow Echo, who by the fact that she takes the 20 home, lives close.

    17. 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.

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

    19. A great intro to this history, I will be interested to see what the other books in the series are like and how they continue the story.

    20. Quick read but it means I need to go back and look closely at the panels and the story on the page My student readers will want the sequel right away Great start to a series.

    21. A Metis main character, time travel, a teacher who uses gender neutral pronouns, whats not to like I read about the author and series on CBC Indigenous and was fortunate to read an ARC through Netgalley It was short and sweet and I look forward to the other three installments Will be recommending we purchase for our school library.
