Real vintage Proulx , spanning centuries and telling the story of the destruction of the forests and ecosystem of Canada and north America.
Using a device she used in Accordion Crimes she follows two families across the centuries. It’s not an easy read and it’s very sad although it does end on a slightly hopeful note for the world we inhabit. It is very well researched as you would expect and very interesting culturally both European and Native American. It took me a while to read because of the breadth and sheer numbers of characters but I was glad I persevered.
