Did you consider using the Gtk.TreeView.Selection property?  Any method
in the C API that starts with get_ or set_ has most likely been
converted to a property in the Gtk# API.  

TreeView is an extremely powerful widget. In my experience, one of the
best ways to get help in using a tool is to insult its authors on public
mailing lists, even with smileys tacked on.

I don't know what shape the Gtk# docs are in for it yet, but you can
always read the C API docs on www.gtk.org.  It's not difficult to
convert the concepts to C#.
