Description

When the time comes each Spring to make maple syrup, an old grandfather reminisces with his granddaughter about the time when the whole county caught fire and burned for a year. Only the snow finally seemed able to smother the fire. Now a new forest has grown over the scar, but the grandfather can still see traces of the fire and show them to his grandchild.
