"Sensitive and enlightening, Cibou is set in 17th-century Mi'kma'ki, territory of the Mi'kmaq of Maritime Canada. The story is that of a young Mi'kmaq woman and her relationship with Jesuit missionary Antoine Daniel - a historical figure who was stationed in Cape Breton - and his brother, Captain Charles Daniel who had established a French fishing and trading post there. (The priest Daniel was later posted to Huronia where he met a violent end and martyrdom as Saint Anthony Daniel.)"--BOOK JACKET.

A bit soap opera-ish, but an inciteful account of early Mi'kmaw-European contact in Cape Breton. Full of interesting details. Well worth reading. Read full review
