Epic in scope, lyrical in its celebration of nature, frequently uncompromising in its portrayal of human violence and greed, and rich in the keenly observed details -- colours, sounds, rhythms, scents, and voices -- that constitute this place we call “our home and native land,” Cantos North/Cantos du nord sings an alternate history, a myth of place, not origins, that cradles us all.
This reprint of my celebration of Canada is offered as a modest token of my profound gratitude to the land and its people, for welcoming a weary young man fleeing the physical and moral devastations of his native land, and giving him a second chance at life and a new home. -- H.B.
