Moore’s historical fiction novel, which begins in the autumn of 1635, in what is now Quebec City, describes the very early contact between, and collision of, two cultures: one, that of Christian Europe, as represented by Jesuit missionaries from France; the other, that of North American indigenous people.

The basis for the excellent 1991 film directed by Bruce Beresford.
