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 The historical documents support Daniel Paul every step.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.

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.

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.

This is an excellent book and represents a very accurate picture of European influence on Amarican Indians. Daniel Paul wasted no effort in his research for the book, I truly wish that every American and European could read this book.
