It is the 11th century, a time of struggle and hardship in what will become the province of Newfoundland. Thrand, a Viking boy from Greenland, is proud to have been chosen to go on a voyage to Leifsbudir in Northern Newfoundland. But events take a disastrous turn when Thrand is captured by the Beothuks, the “red ochre people.” On which side of the cultural divide will he ultimately stand: with his heritage, or with his new people?

  JOAN CLARK is the author of fourteen highly acclaimed works of fiction. Her work has been translated into a dozen languages and has won numerous awards, among them the Mr. Christie Award, the Geoffrey Bilson Award and the Hibernia Award for The Dream Carvers. Joan Clark lives in Newfoundland.

Editorial Reviews

“Then along came Joan Clark with The Dream Carvers. This, I thought, is as close to time travel as one could hope for. Suddenly I was transported not just into the dailiness of their lives, but into their thoughts and dreams” - Polly Horvath
