Format: Paperback
Excellent. It needs to be a required reading for all students in Canada. The historical documents support Daniel Paul every step. It is well written with the facts easily understood. I enjoyed reading the aboriginal side of history and his use of the documentation written by the Europeans to support his views.

Excellent coverage of the treatment (mistreatment) of the Mi'kmaq. I remember most of the history I learned in school, for example the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713 when the French ceded most of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island to the English. I was in grade 4 when WWII ended and was trying to get my 9 year old head head around who were the good guys and who were the bad guys. The French , or the Germans. I remember the Iroquois being the most 'warlike' of the First Nations, and they allied with the English, which did not sound right because I believed the English were the good guys of course because I speak English while the other First Nations allied with the French. Suffice it to say I was wrong, very wrong but I didn't have enough information to know that. I am much better informed now especially after reading the beginning of this book. I am still reading it.

Format: Paperback
Using the colonialist's own words in many cases, this Mi'gmaq author reveals a history that is often painful but necessary to know. This is a book that should be mandatory reading for every student in Canada.
