Barkskins by Annie Proulx

From the award winning author, Annie Proulx has crafted an epic novel of two men who find a world of seemingly infinite forests. These indentured woodsmen begin harvesting a Canadian forest when their lives change forever. The story follows over 300 years of world history as the descends of the two main characters interact with diverse canopies. Proulx vividly describes the use of this seemingly infinite resource, leaving the modern day descendants to face the potential of an ecologic collapse. This monumental novel is full of dark humor, rich history, and a lesson we can all learn about ecological sustainability.
"Perhaps the greatest environmental novel ever written” (San Francisco Chronicle)
