Abstract:

"Bernard, a deaf young woodworker, is drawn into an old growth forest in rural Quebec. Summoned there by the spirits of his Iroquois and European great-grandparents, he witnesses a colossal 800-year-old cedar fall literally at his feet, and nearly loses his life salvaging a portion of the great tree to craft two guitars worthy of the music he hears. Across two centuries and four continents, this tale of family, spirits, and music, paints upon the world's large canvas an intimate story of enduring love and how the mysterious forces that divide us can also bring us together"--Amazon.com.
