0888940866 160 pages including bibliography and Beothuck Vocabulary. The Beothuks. Genocide. The words go together in history - Canadian history. Few Canadians know that this country's early settlers and explorers exterminated a race of Indians; sold them into slavery; hunted, terrorized and slaughtered them, often for sheer sport. The story of the Beothucks will never be fully known, but a fascinating and moving history of a lost race emerges from the words and drawings left by Shananditti, the only survivor of her Newfoundland nation, and confirmed by archeological research. This is a biography both harsh and tragic, but it also speaks of courage, endurance and love. Moderate to average wear. Unmarked.
