Barkskins by Annie Proulx

Title:  Barkskins

Author: Annie Proulx


For anyone who has read Annie Proulx books, it won’t be difficult to find this one a special read.  As always the characters are a unique collection of people with seemingly the same goal of a ruthless subduing of the land regardless of the cost to the rivers, forests, or native peoples.  Her research, parlayed into a masterful story will carry the reader through 300 years as the woodcutters, and those who followed marched through New France here on the North American continent. This novel is longer than any of her others but well-worth it.  It will entertain while also being environmentally informative for this 21st century.
