Reader's Comments:

Hi Noreen, I just finished reading The Ancestors Are Arranging Things. I can't even put to words how moved by the detail of your research and the important accounts/stories you gathered. I'm a member of the Ottawa Algonquin Community (non-status). Your book is such an important addition to my own journey/educating myself. I am holding on to it and will never let it go :) I look forward to researching your other works.

I couldn't put the book down....

  • Hello! I just finished reading The Ancestors are Arranging Things and wanted to send you a note to thank you for it. I found the whole read to be enthralling and now I want to go explore the Ottawa river valley. I've been looking into my genealogy a bit so this was of interest. I'm the great granddaughter of Kate Tennisco (grandfather is Francis Miller) so great great granddaughter of Mary Marcotte. I really didn't know any of this history. My father loves fishing and it impresses me that he has a relative whose name means Fish! Take care, Rebecca Hay

Kruzich chose to bring the past to life by recreating it through traditional oral story telling set around a campfire for the first part of her book and adding it with conventional academic research. Her circle includes descendents of the Chiefs with expanded insight by scholars/academics from the Hudson’s Bay Company, Library and Archives Canada and other institutions.
