Amazing story that takes you into the lifestyle of ancient aboriginal tribes in Quebec! The story shows that there is no perfect society, that no matter where you go, you can meet people with an evil soul. I particularly loved the connection between humans and spirits/ animals, as well as the land itself, and their beautiful and sometimes weird ans scary customs.
