Summary
Abandoned by his native guides a year after arriving in the New World, a seventeenth-century Jesuit missionary is taken prisoner by a Huron warrior in the Canadian wilderness and made to work as an emissary between rival nations at the side of an orphaned Iroquois girl
Summary
Set in 17th-century Ontario during the French conquest of Canada, this sweeping, richly detailed historical epic unfolds through the eyes of three individuals: Huron (Wyandot) warrior Bird, his Iroquois captive Snow Falls, and Jesuit Missionary Pere Christophe. As the French exploit long-standing conflicts between the Huron and the Iroquois to gain control of their respective territories, shifting alliances between all three groups irrevocably alter the landscape of North America and the lives of its indigenous people. -- Description by Gillian Speace.
