Book Description

Aug. 1 1989
A 2005 Canada Reads Selection

In this classic road novel, Jacques Poulin tells the story of a man in search of his brother. The geographical journey — through Detroit, into Chicago, on to St. Louis, along the Oregon Trail and into California — becomes a metaphor for the exploration of the history of the French in North America.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ce roman roule May 17 1999
By A Customer
Je suis professeur de littérature francophone à l'université de Veracruz, et celui-ci est un livre qui s'adapte à mes propos pédagogiques et littéraires. C'est un parcours par l'Amérique du nord et par l'histoire. Si vous aimez les romans contemporains bien écrits, je vous le recomande. Génial, structure, personnages, intrigue, narration, parallélisme entre présent et passé.
