One of the most important books to come out of Quebec, Thirty Acres traces the course of one man's life as he enters into the age-old rhythms of the land and of the seasons. At the same time, it is a novel on a grand social scale, spanning and documenting the tumultuous half-century in which a new, industrial urban society crowded out Quebec's traditional rural one.

Winner of the 1940 Governor General's Literary Award, this book is a classic, telling the story of a farmer in tune with nature and the seasons but at the time of transition to an urban, industrialized society. It tells of the decline of a man and of a way of life.
