Wacousta a 19th century fiction about Canada contains all the descriptions of the harsh wilderness and racist descriptions of the savages as one would exprect from a Canadian book of its time What suprised me most about this novel was the story telling techniues which I recognized from some of my favorite novels such as Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones Richardson gives vivid descriptions of the Canadian world painting a very detailed picture in the mind of the reader I thought this was brilliant considering many of his reader s would have been from the old world and had yet to see the new frontiers Like George Martin Richardson gives his tale a variety of view points As a chapter would end with many uestions of what had gone on and intrigue the next would give a new view point to give answers to some of the previous events The only downfall of this techniue was that Richardson had his Wacousta character spend an unnessarily long time tying it all together at the end Overall it was a delightful surprise for a Canadian book of its time
