text ☆ The Winter People Ó Joseph Bruchac

Full of history danger courage and raw survival this compelling novel by acclaimed author Joseph Bruchac is certain to have readers on the edge of their seat start to finish The Dallas Morning NewsSaxso is fourteen when the British attack his village It’s 1759 and war is raging in the northeast between the British and the French w Enjoyed this story of events in the FI war from the other side that of the French Canadians Abenaki rather than the common British pov Good voice the cadence of the writing made me 'hear' the Abenaki speech patterns rather than plain english I liked that the ending was not pat not uite forgiveness for the wrongs but acknowledgement that there were decent people on both sides of the conflict Made a nice change from the typical bloodthirsty portrayal of the French allied peoples I also appreciated the copious end notes by Bruchac outlining the historical facts of the war and Abenaki culture
