This copy of "Barkskins" has been SIGNED by Annie Proulx on the title page! For those not familiar with her work, yes, that is her signature! In the late seventeeth century, two penniless young Frenchmen, Rene Sel and Charles Duquet, arrive in Canada, then known as New France. Bound to a feudal lord, a "seigneur," for three years in exchange for land, they become woodcutters--barkskins. Proulx tells the stories of the decendents of Sel and Duquest over three hundred years. Proulx's inimitable genius is her creation of characters who are so vivid--in their greed, lust, vengefulness or their compassion and hope--that we follow them with fierce attention. Annie Proulx is one of the most formidable and compelling American writers, and "Barkskins" is her greatest novel, a magnificent marriage of history and imagination which runs in excess of 700 pages. Currently running as a Historical Fiction Limited Series on National Geographic - began on Memorial Day and continues as eight episodes.
