Book Description
At the beginning of the seventeenth century, the French and the English turned their attention to the northerly climes of the New World. With the naive and benevolent complicity of the Norther tribes, they penetrated, awestruck, the wild Eden that had been inhabited for centuries by "Knadyens, Wabanakis, and Gaspegois." In only fifty years, the foreigners took possession of these territories, calling them New France and New England.

Cristoforo recounts the rollicking adventures of Europeans in the New World, who did their best to recreate the Old World, despite their intentions to leave it behind.

The heroic hero of France, England, and "savage" North America is revealed in fantastic episodes by an undeluded fur merchant with an imagination as it is fertile, and who happens to have been born without legs.

Winner of the 1997 Grand Prix du livre de Montreal.

Translation by Darcy Dunton
