Front Cover
McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP, 1998 - History - 640 pages
Following their extinction, the Beothuk came to be viewed as a people whose origins, history, and fate were shrouded in mystery. On a quest to sort fact from fiction, Ingeborg Marshall, a leading expert on the Beothuk, has produced an elegant, comprehensive, and scholarly review of the history and culture of the Beothuk that incorporates an unmatched amount of new archival material with up-to-date archaeological data. The book is beautifully and extensively illustrated with maps, portraits, photographs of Beothuk artifacts, burial sites, and camps, and a set of drawings by Shanawdithit. A History and Ethnography of the Beothuk is a compelling story and an indispensable reference tool for anyone interested in the Beothuk or Native peoples of North America.

Hi, book was interesting how could u say that this civilization was no more as there blood runs threw our veins. We as newfoundland indians have lived together in shallop cove for many moons u think we never had sex with each other. And what about the Gorman family who traded them on the high seas.Facts Marshall writes about are false .
