Product Description

Hundreds of millions of years ago, the Dover Fault was formed
– a geological formation which stretches across the Island of
Newfoundland from Dover in the northeast to Hermitage Bay in the
south. Along this fault line, large underground caverns may have been
formed. The Warm Place is a story about a band of Beothuk people
who survived in the wilderness of Newfoundland to the present day
without being discovered by living in these underground caverns. It
imagines how they have walked amongst us and influenced us for the
past two hundred years. The book details the struggles they underwent
to remain undiscovered, and the ends to which they went to protect
their secret location. As the modern age crept upon them, airplanes
flew over them, and hunters on all-terrain vehicles encountered
them, they had a difficult decision to make—to fight fiercely to remain
unknown, to melt into the modern world, or to do both. The Warm
Place is the final book in The Beothuk Trilogy. The first two books
in the trilogy, Belle Maro and The Mark of Time, can be read in
either order and are not dependent on each other to be understood
and enjoyed. The Warm Place can also be read independent of the
first two books, however, the story has nuances and situations that are
better appreciated if you are familiar with the characters in the first
two books.
