Algonquin Spring by Canadian author Rick Revelle is the second book in his Algonqin Quest series. I really enjoyed the first book entitled I Am Algonquin and this second book continues the story of the Algonquin Mahingan and his family. In two parallel stories, we are introduced to the Mi’kmaq and Beothuk peoples who live in the Eastern Maritimes and Newfoundland as well as following Corn Dog, the Iroquois who is the enemy to both the Algonquin and the Mi’kmaq. The timing of this story is some 300 years before white people came to the new world, although the Vikings have visited. The story became somewhat of a fable by the author introducing the characters of Glooscap and Crazy Crow as well as a shape-shifter.

The Indians spent much of their time in raiding other tribes and fighting territorial battles and most of this book is the lead up to another violent confrontation. The author has done his research and kept the history and the cultural information accurate. I enjoyed all the descriptions of the woods, rivers, lakes and shorelines that the various tribes travelled and lived by. Their customs are strictly adhered to giving the reader a very clear picture of the lifestyle of the First Nations at that time.

Mainly this was a story of survival, warfare and relationships. I found it to be an exciting and educational adventure. I am looking forward to continuing to read about Mahingan’s family in the next book, Algonquin Sunset. ( )
