Overview

The Honor of the Big Snows (1911) by James Oliver Curwood - A story of survival in a remote part of Canada. As the novel begins, a woman has died, and the lives of the three main characters hang perilously in the balance. The Honor of the Big Snows is the tale of a young half-breed French/Indian boy. When he appears at a a Canadian trading post with his violin, his life and those of all around him are changed forever. The pace of this book is slower than Curwood's usual action-adventure novels, told over the time frame of 17 years, and reflecting the setting of the book which was first published in 1911. It is, nevertheless, a classic Curwood tale of survival and the battle of man against the elements. Genre: Action, adventure, Canadian, Canada, relationships, family, books.
