It's 1696 and Pierre Le Moyne D'Iberville is marching across eastern Newfoundland, attacking English settlements. Young Thomas Doucet of Plaisance listens in awe to the stories of daring and adventure. suddenly, Thomas finds himself in the spotlight.

This story tells the true tale of D'Iberville's raids through the eyes of imaginary characters. Besides Thomas and his sister, Madeleine, we meet Thomas's friend, the rich and priveleged Nicolas Chevalier, who attends school with the Recollet Fathers. And then there's Mall, the little Mi'kmaw girl, who ventures too far onto the river ice. Discover how a famous French soldier turns life upside down in Plaisance during the winter of 1696-1697, and how an ordinary boy becomes a local hero.
