Glooscap, the Beavers and the Sugarloaf Mountian

  Author:   Allison Mitcham  
  Artist :   Réjean Roy    
  Publisher:  Bouton d’or Acadie

After creating the Mi’kmaqs, the great Glooscap was certain that he had established harmony on earth. But a problem remained: the beavers had built a huge dam across the Restigouche River, preventing the salmon from swimming upriver as far as the camp of the Mi’kmaqs who had come to fish there. Young Mi’kmaq men were convinced they could remedy the situation. However, completely failing to put things right, they asked the loon to call Glooscap to helpthem. Will the beavers once more outmaneuver Master Glooscap?
