From the Back Cover:

An extraordinary fable by an author unique in Canadian writing. The Heart of the Ancient Wood focuses on universal forces – love, innocence, exile and death – and their impact on the human experience of the wilderness. Sir Charles G.D. Roberts, whose poetry and prose are part of the well-springs of Canadian literature, has written an ambitious novel, one which succeeds in being entertaining while dealing with cosmic issues, central still in our modern world. In the romantic tale of a fatherless girl growing up in the wilderness and discovering her own womanhood and humanity, he makes profound suggestions about the conflicts and harmonies possible in man’s encounter with nature.
