Rate this:

In the summer of 1701, negotiations were held between the French, their Native allies, and the Iroquois in the town of Montreal, the heart of New France, to sign the Great Peace treaty.

This book recounts the story of this exceptional event in words and images, painting a picture of a legendary time in North America, when the most disparate cultures had to find a way to co-exist. The story is told through 11 fictional letters based on actual letters of Bacqueville de La Potherie, a privileged observer of the events. The book provides an overview of the history of northeastern Native cultures and French colonials. Accounts of the days leading to the signing of the treaty and the people involved come to life through detailed illustrations and artifacts.
