Here are a few excerpts from my upcoming novel, Out of the Beauce, a story of inner strength and determination as a poor grain farmer struggles with the loss of his spouse. His children are removed from the farmhouse while a deep depression overtakes the farmer. All is at risk, his children, his farm, the land he loves. He strikes out for the far North to search for glitter in the gold fields of Dawson. Along the way, he meets many a strange traveler.
