A good read. Love the quote.

Last of the Coureurs de Bois "Once the canvas has been stretched over the framework, and the snow banked up all round against the sides, and the stove is nice and warm, and there's a haunch of beaver in the pot -- then he can slip into almost a total state of well-being -- even though he may not yet fully realize that right then and there, in the heart of the woods, he is living thorough the best moments of his life."

Hello Bioguide:  Very cool picture.  It looks like a modern day Group of Seven art piece. 

Take care,
Cousin Pete

Bioguide, Nice work on the picture. Is that book from which you quote an autobiography?
