Description

These eight tales of survival and triumph, suffused with magical realism, bring to life the harsh struggles, the dreams, the greed, the obsessions, the xenophobia — and the love — experienced by the trappers and prospectors who flocked to northern Ontario during the Porcupine Gold Rush (1900 – 1922).

Praise For The Uncharted Heart

The Uncharted Heart is a remarkable evocation of events and place in Canadian history, a discerning examination of human motivation and behaviour, and an adroit use of language. Melissa Hardy has an obvious place in the chart of Canadian writers.” — The Globe and Mail

“These are tales meant to enthrall and entertain and they succeed, yes, magnificently....their effect is haunting. They radiate with the visual splendour of dreams and the psychic force of poetry.... [A] superb collection" — National Post
