Book Description:

La Chasse-galerie (The Hunt of Gallery) also known as “The Bewitched Canoe” is a French Canadian tale of voyageurs who make a deal with the Devil, a variant of the Wild Hunt. In Quebec, the legend of the “chasse-galerie”, or the bewitched canoe, is a favourite. Its most famous version was written by Honoré Beaugrand (1848 – 1906?).

Il s’agit de l’histoire de bûcherons de la Gatineau qui font un pacte avec le diable afin de faire voler un canot pour qu’ils puissent rendre visite à leurs femmes. Il devront cependant éviter de blasphémer durant la traversée, ne point heurter le canot aux clochers d’une église et être de retour avant six heures le lendemain matin. Dans le cas contraire ceux-ci perdraient leurs âmes. La version la plus connue est celle écrite par Honoré Beaugrand.
