Although lengthy, this highly readable history of the Beothuk will add much to what has been meager information about the tribe which was decimated by early Newfoundland settlers in the 1800s. This history covers the period between their first incounter with Europeans to their eventural death. Since they have not existed for 160 years, had no written language, and left little impression on history, Marshall had a difficult task, but she has fulfilled it admirably.
