"The controversy over the Quebec government's plan for the James Bay region is by now familiar to thousands of Canadians. We know that the white man plans to manipulate the ecology of the region so that he can exploit the power of its quick-flowing rivers. Jane Willis, a Cree Indian, grew up on an island where the "mighty jisah-seebee" (the Fort George River) meets the eastern shore of James Bay, Geniesh (Janie) is both her story and a living document of a civilization that in its own terms is already rich in human treasures.' -- from cover.
