1 Down, Heather. A DEADLY DISTANCE.
Toronto Sandcastle / Dundurn 2007 1550026372 / 9781550026375 First Edition Soft Cover Fine Cover illustration by Ljuba Levstek. 
133 pp, 8 1/4" H. "At the beginning of the nineteenth century in northeastern Newfoundland, the Beothuks, a First Nations people, have been decimated by disease and are hunted and persectuted relentlessly by European settlers and fur trappers. Young Mishbee, her older sister, Oobata, and the rest of their band struggle courageously in the Bay of Exploits area against tuberculosis, misunderstanding, and prejudice. Mishbee tries to maintain the traditions of her people as she slowly befriends a young English settler and shipbuilder named John and attempts to bridge the deadly gulf between their cultures. But has the friendship blossomed too late? Will Mishbee and John be able to show the settlers that the Beothuks aren't a threat before they disappear completely?" Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright.
