Mohawk trilogy

Mohawk trilogy

Canadian folkways lean on immigrants’ and Indigenous’ stories. The Women Review: “Sky Walker Tehawennihárhos: Charter is a complex, action-filled novel about the 1840s in Canada West [formerly Upper Canada, now Ontario].  …Leading us through the suspenseful plot, filled with humour and emotion, Minsos writes spare, clean prose. The late Mel Hurtig once said about her style, ‘Every word is right.’ In Minsos’ books we witness survival struggles, stereotypical biases and gender inequity. We follow the trail of shady land sharks and opportunistic religious scoundrels. Exposing documented thievery and tragic events of a place and time in our pre-Confederation history, the fabric of fiction is such that it allows us to glimpse into the heart of the indomitable human spirit.  … ‘We cannot undo the past. But we can shape our destiny. A history lesson, yes. But such a joy to read’.”
