Strangers Devour the Land: The Cree Hunters of the James Bay Area Versus Premier Bourassa and the James Bay Development Corporation

By Richardson, Boyce

Toronto: Macmillan of Canada, 1983. Book. Good. Paperback. Clean sound copy. light edge wear and some light page tanning. A very nice clean copy! Secure boxed packaging! "East of James Bay, at the base of Hudson Bay, the lake-pocked granite of the Canadian Shield stretches for thousands of square miles. When, in 1971 the James Bay Development Corporation announced that t would build a series of gigantic dams and reservoirs here, the area was described as barren, uninhabited, and fit for nojthing but flooding. Yet there were people who lived on this land and cared deeply about it. For uncounted centuries it had been the central homeland, the hunting grounds, the "garden"(as old Job Bearskin calls it), of some 60000 Cree Indians. The conflict between the Cree and the project that threatened to destroy their heritage is a classic one and this is a classic book. To produce it, Boyce Richardson, an experienced journalist with the Montreal Star, left his job to absorb himself in the Cree people's fight, travelling with them on their traplines and sitting with them through hours of courtroom testimony. The legal battle was a clash between cultures which the Indians were doomed to lose. Now, with recent cutures which the Indians were doomed to lose. Now, with recent events in Quebec, the whole James Bay project is gain in question." j1.

An increasing number of contemporary scientists, philosophers and theologians downplay their professional authority and describe their work as simply "telling stories about the world". If this is so, literary criticism can and should be applied to all these fields. Yet story telling is neither innocent nor empty-handed. Register, rhetoric, and imagery all manipulate in their own ways. Above all, irony emerges as the natural mode of our modern fragmented culture. Since the eighteenth century there have been only two possible ways of understanding the world--the fundamentalist and the ironic..
