(6),[1]-291,(7). 8vo,light brown cloth spine with dark brown paper- covered boards, black lette ring to spine. The fifteenth work of fiction by the renowned New Brunswick novelist. "The day Hector Penniac died in the fourth hold of the cargo shipLutheran he woke at 6:20 in the morning. It would be a fine hot June day. He could hear the bay from his window — it was just starting to make high tide — and far offshore he could see lobster boats moving out to their traps. With these words. literary legend David Adams Richards leads us inside the complex world of a First Nations band. "One fine sunny day in 1985, seventeen-year-old Hector Penniac, a Micmac boy from a local First Nations reserve, begins his first real job to earn money for university: placing logs inthe hold of a cargo ship down at the wharf. By noon, Hector is dead. And h is neighbour, a young white man named Roger Savage, is accused of killing him. Taking this shocking incident as his starting point, and demonstrating his justly celebrated insight into the hearts and minds of diverse characters, including those most often silenced and misunderstood, master storyteller David Adams Richards subtly and precisely unravels a complex tale about crime and punishment, truth and lies, power and justice, that is at once anaddictive mystery, a nuanced portrait of a close-knit community in crisis, and an illumination of some of the still-unhealed wounds at the heart of o ur country." - from the dj.

"Brave, impetuous, fiery -- Claude Louis Hector, duke of Villars and marshal of France, was the last of the great generals of Louix XIV. Though overshadowed in most accounts of the long War of the Spanish Succession by other French marshals and by Marlborough and Prince Eugene of the allied forces, Villars alone, Mr Sturgill believes, was responsible for preserving the integrity of the French nation in the final years of the war. [...] Marshal Villars did not bring to the conduct of warany great theoretical or strategic insight, nor was he a brilliant tactici an. But he had the good general's knack of winning the confidence of his soldiers, and he had, too, the knowledge and determination to wield ably the clumsy war machine of the early eighteenth century. Though hampered by his arrogance and his lack of political sagacity, he did possess that combination of qualities to win victories for France when they were most needed." - from the dustjacket.
