About the Book Residents of a small Quebec village, half French and half English, are feuding as the Referendum on Seperation from Canada approaches. Meanwhile, an Arab entrepreneur is busy buying property (restaurant, hardware store, marina, large houses), and an Abenaki Indian with a law degree from McGill has arrived in town, allegedly for the spring fishing.
