La Petite Russie by Francis Desharnais published by Pow Pow
It is a story of the colonization of Abitibi. A portrait of men and women who have left everything behind to settle in the North. The story of a small village called Guyenne. Except that Guyenne is not a parish like the others. It's a cooperative. The wood you cut there does not belong to you and the co-op keeps 50% of your salary to finance the development of the colony. In the area, there are some who call this place, "Little Russia". This is where Marcel and Antoinette lived for twenty years.
