Rate this:
The Orenda opens with a brutal massacre and the kidnapping of the young Iroquois, Snow Falls, a spirited girl with a special gift. Her captor, Bird, is an elder and one of the Huron nation’s great warriors and statesmen. It has been years since the murder of his family, but in Snow Falls, Bird recognizes the ghost of his lost daughter, seeing that the powerful magic she possesses will be useful on the troubled road ahead. Bird’s people have battled the Iroquois for as long as he can remember, but both tribes now face a new, more dangerous threat from afar. Christophe, a charismatic Jesuit missionary, has found his calling among the Huron, and devotes himself to learning and understanding their customs and language in order to lead them to Christ. Bestseller. 2013.
