Illusory tales of New World wonderments provide a spine-chilling backdrop for an exhilarating adventure of a one-armed boy searching the great unknown for the Jesuit priest who had taken him into his heart and raised him as his own.
The story of Louis Charbeneau in Stone Thrower is in some sense a coming of age tale, the story of a Dickensian character who discovers what it is to be a man, in spite of his “anomaly,” in 17th century Paris and again in the unrestrained wilderness of Nouvelle France ou du Canada. Illusory tales of New World wonderments provide a spine-chilling backdrop for an exhilarating adventure of a one-armed boy searching the great unknown for the Jesuit priest who had taken him into his heart and raised him as his own. An oftentimes brutal quest, the adventures of Louis Charbeneau in the wilds of a whole new world intertwines superstition and religion to produce a degree of wonder and magical realism.
