Brown invokes with a minimalist style the world of early Canada in the making. The speed and ease of the format allowed me to become readily immersed in a mood, a time, a place, and an historical tale. It is an original form of literate storytelling which Brown vividly proves is often underrated for its power and possibility. Every school in the land that worries about literacy and an appreciation of history among its charges should have it on the curriculum as required reading.
