"Walter Oliphant, penniless and starving, had saved a man's life and the man in grateful recognition had given him an excellent job. And thenit was that Oliphant began to wonder. Was Neruda's profound interest in hi m the result of gratitide and nothing else7 What was the mysterious glint in the financier's eyes that he caught fixed on him now and again? What was the implication of the sinister hints that he deliberately let fall but would never explain? Why did he concern himself so intimately with Oliphanfs personal life? Why was the knowledge of Oliphanfs love affair so profoundly distasteful to him that he made every effort to destroy it ? The key to these mysteries lies in one elemental fact which illumines the whole and bursts upon the consciousness of the reader with startling suddenness in the climax of Pagan Love." - rear dj panel..

"The story of the Canadian Pacific is synonymous with the story of the making of modern Canada. But Mr Gibbon places the remote genesis of this most remarkable of railroads long before Canada as such was even thought of: in the age-old dream of the Northwest Passage to Cathay. With great modern liners plying both the Atlantic and the Pacific from Canadian ports the C.P.R. does in fact link the Occident and the Orient as no other one company does.

From its early beginnings Mr Gibbon traces the vision of the northern route to the Indies down to the present-day ribbons of steel across Canada and the connecting steamship lines which, taken together, reach from Southampton to Shanghai. We are shown the early mariners in their chimerical quest among the northern ice floes, the fur traders who penetrated the far interior by canoe and portage, the Northwesters and the servants of the Hudson's Bay Company. Canada was pushing westward." - from the dustjacket.
