Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Rene Sel and Charles Duquet arrive in New France during the late seventeenth century bound to a fueudal lord for three years in exchange for land, becoming woodcutters -- barkskins. Rene suffers extraordinary hardship. He is oppressed by the forest he is charged with clearing and is forced to marry a Mi'kmaw woman and their descendants live trapped between two inimical cultures. But Duquet, crafty and ruthless, runs away, becomes a fur trader, then sets up a timber business. Proulx tells the stories of the descendants of Sel and Duquet over three hundred years--their travels from North America across the world, the revenge of rivals, accidents, pestilence, Indian attaks, and cultural annihilation. They seize what they can of a presumed infinite resource, leavaing the modern-day characters to face possible ecological collapse," -- Provided by the publisher.
