Summary

Summary

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 Anthony Daniel - a historical figure who was first stationed in Cape Breton in 1632 - and his brother, Captain Charles Daniel who had established a French trading post in 1629. The priest Daniel was later posted to Huronia where, 14 years later, he met a violent end and martyrdom as Saint Anthony Daniel. Susan Biagi has woven a marvelously intuitive tale ... at once beautiful and harsh, observing the simple and dangerous lives of cultures interacting on the threshold of new world history.
