This is a novel of one mans quixotic mission to save the Beothuk of Newfoundland from extinction, his love for Shawnadithit, and the tragedy of her life and the lives of her people. Based on true accounts, the novel is told in the alternating first-person narratives of William Epps Cormack, an eccentric Newfoundland-born Scottish merchant, and Shawnadithit, a young Beothuk woman captured by English settlers in 1823 who proved to be the last Beothuk.
