Through Black Spruce is a haunting tale of love, identity and loss narrated by former bush pilot and Cree native Will Bird and his niece Annie.  The story backtracks to tell of Will's fight to keep his bush-country Indian life alive and protected while he suppresses painful childhood memories.  Canadian novelist and short-story writer Joseph Boyden was awarded Canada's top literary award the Scotiabank Giller Prize in 2008 for Through Black Spruce.

Les Saisons de la Solitude de Joseph Boyden, romancier et
écrivain de nouvelles canadien, est un récit saisissant de l'amour, de l'identité et du deuil, raconté par un ancien pilote de la forêt canadienne, Will Bird, et sa nièce Annie, qui veille sur ce dernier.  Une communion du silence, une fresque avec comme arrière-fond l'héritage Cri de Will Bird et l'immense forêt du Nord.  Cette oeuvre remarquable a été couronnée en 2008 par le plus grand prix littéraire canadien, le prix Giller.
