The Adventures of Philippe–A Story of Old Quebec

by Gwendolyn Bowers

Some Good Historical Context

3.0 rating
December 16, 2019

The book is a slower story but contains some good historical context and information. However, it was disappointing to see that the word savages used to describe the First Nations was kept in this version of the book.
