The making of Nicolas Montour
Leo-Paul Desrosiers is the uncontested master of the historical novel; in this book the full maturity of his talents is revealed. A profound knowledge of history and tradition gives authenticity to his picture of the harsh life of voyageurs and traders in the north at the beginning of the nineteenth century and the pitiless rivalry between the great fur-trading companies.
