  1. Bark is the skin of the trees, and it has some good usages in medicine (pine bark i.e. has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects).
    I see that in this series 'barkskins' is the name given to people, to the outcasts.

  2. I threw in the towel reading this book. I only got about 1/3 of the way through. Too many characters, too vast an historical sweep for me. But I did finish the opening part about the settlers in New France. I'm looking forward to the mini-series!

    1. Sometimes writers really do go too far with the number of characters. The saga I'm currently translating for the readers in my country has more than 2000 pages with up to seven protagonists who all bring at least 10-15 other characters each with them and most of them have similar names. I don't remember any of them even though I've been working on it for six months now.

  3. The actor in the second picture looks like a young Johnny Depp!

    1. Maybe just on that photo, otherwise he is not as dirty and ugly as Depp.

    2. I was never a fan of Depp either, but my mom thinks he's everything!! She's all about Johnny Depp and Mel Gibson. Clearly, I got better taste. :)

    3. And she has the decency to tell you that you love criminals? Both Depp and Gibson are registered molesters and primitives :)

    4. I didn’t know this!!! I’d rather like psychopaths than molesters...

    5. They both bet their wives, sadly.

  4. I did not read the book, but if there are too many characters and it's too hard to follow along, I probably would give up on this mini-series too. My attention span is too short to follow more than a handful of characters at a time.

    1. That is one of the reasons I hated GOT so much, too many characters brought with no introduction in the form of a lot of very bad actors.
