Outardes | Les éditions du passage
In this first volume, Catherine Côté embarks on a journey through the footsteps of those who colonized Abitibi during the crisis of the 1930s. Across the territory and in search of her roots, Outardes resonates with the harshness and beauty of the Abitibi lands, echoes of a fragmented past, dispersed over a family's travels. Poetry of origins, this volume questions the place of family heritage and territory in the construction of an identity. The author visits her ghosts with great gentleness.
