Two Trails Narrow
Format: Paperback

Two Trails Narrow follows the lives of two Algonquin half-breeds, Ryman McGregor and Abraham Scott, who united as wannabe escapees from the harsh hands of the Jesuit priests at St. Xavier's Residential School outside Spaniards Bay on Lake Ontario. With the help of a kind man and Ryman's sister, they are successful in their escape from the priests and their RCMP trackers. Arriving home on the reserve had its good fortunes but also marked their partition. Their reunion takes place years later, when they are selected to serve as valuable Corporals of one of the best Canadian commando units in WWII. Set against the residential school experience for Native children and the looming shadow of the Second World War, Two Trails Narrow recounts the pain of a young generation of Natives who were pulled into the vortex of forced battle at home and overseas. Through the eyes of two Native soldiers, Ryman McGregor and Abraham Scott, Two Trails Narrow is a remembrance to the courage and depth of the human spirit in an era of hostilities.

I Am Algonquin: An Algonquin Quest Novel
Format: Paperback

This book paints a vivid picture of the original peoples of North America before the arrival of Europeans. The novel follows the story of Mahingan and his family as they live the traditional Algonquin way of life in what is now Ontario in the early 14th century. Along the way we learn about the search for moose and the dramatic rare woodland buffalo hunt, conflicts with other Native nations, and the dangers of wolves and wolverines. We also witness the violent game of lacrosse, the terror of a forest fire, and the rituals that allow Algonquin boys to be declared full-grown men.

But warfare is also part of their lives, and signs point to a defining conflict between Mahingan's nation, its allies the Omàmiwinini (Algonquin), Ouendat (Huron), and the Nippissing against the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois). The battle's aftermath may open the door to future journeys by Mahingan and his followers.

Le Cadeau de l’esturgeon
Authors:
Stéphanie Déziel
Format: Paperback

Anwatan a 14 ans et vit dans la communauté algonquine de Kitcisakik. Il a maintenant l’âge de pêcher l’esturgeon. Avant d’apprendre les rudiments de cette pêche en compagnie de son grand-père, il fera un voyage dans le passé à califourchon sur le dos de Name, un vieil esturgeon de 100 ans. Il découvrira alors comment ses ancêtres pêchaient cet énorme poisson qui est désormais en danger de disparaitre.

Stéphanie Déziel a une formation en philosophie. Depuis 2009, elle habite Val-d’Or. Elle est maman à la maison et elle écrit des contes pour enfants. Ce sont les témoignages des pêcheurs algonquins ainsi que les souvenirs des ainés de Kitcisakik et du lac Simon qui lui ont inspiré cette histoire.

Christine Sioui Wawanoloath est une artiste en art visuel et une auteure abénakise-wendate. Elle nous rappelle : « L’esturgeon jaune est un des symboles du peuple abénakis. Généreux, on se servait de toutes ses parties pour différentes utilisations autres que l’alimentation. Vieux de 200 millions d’années, il est aujourd'hui une espèce menacée. »

Algonquin Spring: An Algonquin Quest Novel
Format: Paperback

Years after a devastating battle, Mahingan and his tribe struggle to recover a lost loved one.

Six years earlier in the fourteenth century, Mahingan and his tribe fought the Battle of the Falls against the Haudenosaunee. There were many losses, and Mahingan thought he had lost his wife, Wàbananang (Morning Star). But after the battle, he learned she was still alive, taken captive by the Haudenosaunee. Now on a desperate quest to rescue her, Mahingan and his small family are wintering north of the Ottawa River near present-day Lachute, Quebec. If they are to have any hope of recovering Wàbananang, though, they must first survive until spring.

At the same time, over 2,000 kilometres away in present-day Newfoundland, events taking place will affect four Native tribes: Mahingan’s, a group of Mi’kmaq, a Beothuk group, and a band of Haudenosaunee warriors led by Mahingan’s old nemesis, Ò:nenhste Erhar (Corn Dog) — a fierce Mohawk War Chief and Wàbananang’s captor.

Along the way, Mahingan’s brother, Mitigomij, will reveal his true self and powers. Then, an influential Mi’kmaq legend puts a new, powerful twist on events, and threatens to send things spiraling out of Mahingan’s control.

Kipawa Deux sangs
Authors:
Daniel Gagné
Format: Paperback

Une rencontre fortuite en 1948, improbable au coeur des denses forêts du Bas-Témiscaningue, scelle à jamais le destin de deux êtres que rien n'avait préparés à réunir. Tom, un étudiant en entomologie forestière, et Suzanne, une jeune métisse au coeur farouche. Ils sont loin de se douter que leur sort est lié à celui d'un tout petit insecte qui pourrait livrer bataille à la mouche à scie de l'épinette, échappée d'Europe, et qui ravage les forêts de l'immense territoire du Kipawa. Mais pour lui donner la chance d'agir, une grande compagnie forestière doit renoncer aux méthodes classiques de lutte contre les insectes et se mettre à l'écoute du petit peuple d'eau, les Algonquins qui habitent le pays depuis des milliers d'années. Le secret que tentent de percer les entomologistes pourra-t-il remonterjusqu'à la surface, au milieu des remous et des obstacles qui se dressent sur le parcours hésitant de Tom et Suzanne ? En toile de fond, tout le drame de la vie métisse, partagée entre deux mondes, deux sangs, deux contradictions. Mais ne sommes-nous pas tous un peu métis sous le couvert des apparences?

Daniel Gagné est né à Rouyn-Noranda, en Abitibi. Très tôt, il s'est intéressé aux langues amérindiennes, plus particulièrement l'algonquin, qu'il a tenté d'apprivoiser lors de ses séjours dans divers campements et lieux de rassemblement d'été de ce peuple. Il signe ici son premier roman pour ados et adulte.
