From the Author:
I wrote this novel simply because I lived it. In 1970, like a number of my characters, I deserted my family’s culture of army carrier and have become a miner within the Yukon. within the mining camps I taught simple English to refugees from japanese Europe, lots of them veterans of the second one warfare and the revolts in Warsaw, Berlin, Budapest and Prague. a few, then of their past due forties and early fifties, have been baby slave miners and survived the dying camps of Hitler and Stalin. Others have been low-grade battle criminals, and between them, unrepentant Nazis. Feuds have been universal and suspicious deaths no longer unusual. the opposite universal factor between them used to be their hatred of communists.
assisting me educate the ecu refugees have been participants of the newest new release of refugees to Canada: draft dodgers and deserters from the U.S.A. As they refused to take part within the warfare in Vietnam, this made them, within the eyes of a few of the ecu refugees, communist sympathizers, and goals for his or her hostility.
As my very own ancestry is American (my father left California to serve within the Canadian First department in the course of WW 2), a few of the Europeans’ regarded good upon him, yet poorly upon myself. i used to be now not in Vietnam the place “I belonged”. I defined to them that i used to be Canadian and never topic to the draft. To them, this used to be meaningless. My father was once American and served within the Canadian military, hence I, as a Canadian, may still serve within the American military.
We by no means settled that.
