Euchariste Mosian is a typical French-Canadian peasant farmer, bound to the soil by ties of tradition and blood, taciturn and shrewd, yet unable to cope with the forces that come to shatter his Laurentian peace. Thirty Acres is the story of Euchariste and his family, but at the same time, it is the story of modern French Canada adapting its ancient folkways to modern conditions. [Ringuet]

From the Back Cover:

One of the most important books to come out of Quebec, THIRTY ACRES traces the course of one man’s life as he enters into the age-old rhythms of the land and of the seasons. At the same time, it is a novel on a grand social scale, spanning and documenting the tumultuous half-century in which a new, industrial urban society crowded out Quebec’s traditional rural one.

Winner of the Governor General’s Award and numerous other national and international literary prizes, THIRTY ACRES is a universal story of birth and death, renewal and reversal, ascent and decline, and a masterpiece of irony and realism. [Ringuet]
