These eight tales of survival and triumph, suffused with magical realism, bring to life the harsh struggles, the dreams, the greed, the obsessions, the xenophobia — and the love — experienced by the trappers and prospectors who flocked to northern Ontario during the Porcupine Gold Rush (1900 – 1922).
