The Orenda by Joseph Boyden


In The Orenda, past Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning author Joseph Boyden takes readers back in time to 17th-century Canada and explores the clashes between the Jesuits and the indigenous peoples. The story weaves the lives of a young Iroquois girl, a charismatic Jesuit missionary and a Huron elder into a nation-shaping tale.
