In 1876, Big Bear, a Plains Cree Chief, stands alone among the prairie chiefs in his refusal to choose a reserve and acknowledge White ownership of the land. His own vision comprehends a new Canadian Northwest in which all peoples can live together in peace. The Temptations of Big Bear is Rudy Wiebe's interpretation of western Canadian history, which encompasses not only his hero's struggle for integrity but also the whole range of richness of the Plains culture. Here is the giant circle of the prairie horizon, and the joy, the sorrow, the pain, the triumph, and the violence of the unconquerable human beings faced with destruction.
