After the death of her father, Kathryn must go to live with her Aunt Belle in Alberta. But a shock is in store for this well-bred young Toronto lady. Arriving at the town of Hopeful, Kathryn is horrified to learn her new home is a group of shacks called River Falls, a Metis community.

Never having known her true heritage, Kathryn is further shocked to discover it's not even a permanent home. Barred from owning land, the Metis must find a way to live in the road allowances, or ditches – the strips of government land between the public highway and the private properties of recognized citizens.

Excitement comes in the form of a mysterious stranger known as the Highwayman, a shadowy Robin Hood figure who rights wrongs against the Metis people in his own way. When he is framed for a crime he did not commit, and Aunt Belle becomes involved, Kathryn must use all her resources to prove their innocence – and challenge the deep-seated beliefs of an entire community.

Outcasts of River Falls is the sequel to the award-winning Belle of Batoche.
