John Richardson È 1 FREE READ FREE READ ☆ Wacousta Or the Prophecy a Tale of the Canadas Set in the 1760s at the time of Pontiac’s Indian alliance against the British Wacousta combines elements of revenge tragedy and gothic romance in reconstructing a violent episode in Canadian frontier history In Major John Richard. Generally considered to be the first Canadian novel this was reuired reading for my Early Canadian Lit class There s not many people who have heard of this book Far less have read it and even less than that are those who actually got through the whole thing I am proud to say that I really can t remember if I finished it or not so dull was the writing And it s not the language or era in which is was written that s to blame either Robinson Crusoe was written in 1719 well over a century before Wacousta and it s a wonderful book that has stood the test of time Let this dry Saltine of a book remind us that just because it s the first of something doesn t mean it s the best of anything

John Richardson È 1 FREE READ FREE READ ☆ Wacousta Or the Prophecy a Tale of the Canadas Itions – garrison against wilderness restraint against passion mercy against justice – this suspenseful novel creates a world of deception and terror in which motive is ambiguous and the boundary between order and anarchy uncle. Wacousta a 19th century fiction about Canada contains all the descriptions of the harsh wilderness and racist descriptions of the savages as one would exprect from a Canadian book of its time What suprised me most about this novel was the story telling techniues which I recognized from some of my favorite novels such as Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones Richardson gives vivid descriptions of the Canadian world painting a very detailed picture in the mind of the reader I thought this was brilliant considering many of his reader s would have been from the old world and had yet to see the new frontiers Like George Martin Richardson gives his tale a variety of view points As a chapter would end with many uestions of what had gone on and intrigue the next would give a new view point to give answers to some of the previous events The only downfall of this techniue was that Richardson had his Wacousta character spend an unnessarily long time tying it all together at the end Overall it was a delightful surprise for a Canadian book of its time
