Recounts the varied history of the first inhabitants of the territory that would become Canada. Using oral history, archaeology, and traditional stories, shows how dozens of distinct societies took shape and, using written records as well, what happened with their first contact with the Europeans. Relates the stories of the meeting in 1534 between Jacques Cartier and Donnacona, the Iroquoian chief whom Cartier later kidnapped, Henry Hudson's ill-fated voyage into Hudson's Bay, and the encounter on the Pacific coast between Nootka chief Maquinna and the English sailor John Jewitt.
