It comes down large and ale-coloured and joins the Saint Lawrence, the 2 streams include the pan of Montreal Island, the Ottawa merges and loses itself, and the main-stream strikes northeastward one thousand miles to sea.”
With those phrases Hugh MacLennan starts his robust saga of Athanase Tallard, the son of an aristo-cratic French-Canadian culture, of Kathleen, his appealing Irish spouse, and in their son Paul, who struggles to set up a stability in himself and within the state he calls home.
