In this vividly imagined account of first contact between Jesuit priests and the Huron in the seventeenth century, Boyden depicts two distinct cultures on a collision course. His portrayal of the conflict feels even-handed and realistic, not glorifying either side. Rich with details about Huron customs, this suspenseful, thought-provoking novel brings history to life.
