We Were Not The Savages: A Mi'kmaq Perspective on the Collision Between European and Native American Civilizations-New Twenty-First-Century Edition

By Daniel N. Paul 359 pgs (sc) $24.95 Fernwood Publishing

Paul has rewritten and updated his original bestseller, expanding upon the first edition and including new information. The book presents a history of the Mi'kmaq people's struggle for survival, from first European contact to the present. The book, Paul indicates in the foreward, recounts the atrocities suffered by his ancestors "to persuade people of the majority society to use whatever power they have to see that Canada makes meaningful amends for the horrifying wrongs of the past."

"The Mi'kmaq were, and are, a great people. To be a descendent of this noble race, who displayed an indomitable will to survive in spite of incredible odds against them, fills me with pride."
