"In the late seventeenth century, two penniless young Frenchmen, Rene Sel and Charles Duquet, arrive in Canada, then known as New France. Bound to a feudal lord for three years in exchange for land, they become woodcutters – barkskins. Sel, suffering extraordinary hardship in the forest he is charged with clearing, is forced to marry a Mi'kmaw woman. Duquet, crafter and ruthless, runs away, becomes a fur trader, then sets up a timber business. Proulx tells the stories of their descendants over three hundred years – their travels across North America, to Europe, China and New Zealand under stunningly brutal conditions – the revenge of rivals, accidents, pestilence, Indian attacks and cultural annihilation. "Barkskins is an extraordinary marriage of history and imagination from one of America's most formidable novelists," according to the book cover.
