Description

Women are absent from the official history of America – isn’t this said enough? The Amerindians certainly, but also all the others, without cultural distinction: Inuit, Canadian, English, Black, French and Métis. Several of them are exceptional beings whose contact with this vast continent has revealed their intelligence and character. They made America restore the memory of fifteen of these “remarkable forgotten people”, heroines with invisible exploits, resistance fighters, pioneers, adventurers, diplomats, scientists, explorers and artists …   This book is inspired by the material and philosophy of the radio series De Remarkables Forgotten, produced and broadcast by the Première Chaîne de Radio-Canada. The literary version gives new life to the ambition of the two authors: to look at the back of the story to illuminate the faces of ordinary people, who often are the real actors.
