Summary, etc.:
"The original native people of Newfoundland, the Beothuk were the first North American natives encountered by European sailors. This astounding novel tells their story. Beginning a thousand years ago in the time of the Vikings in Newfoundland, this epic tale is crammed with incidents of war and peace, with fights to the death and long nights of lovemaking, and with accounts of the rise of local clan chiefs and the silent fall of great distant empires. Out of the mists of the past it sweeps forward eight hundred years, to the capture and lonely death of the young woman who has the last of her people. Bold and humane, ambitious and deeply moving, The Beothuk Saga brilliantly revives the story of the Beothuks in a work of rare vision and power."-- Publisher.
