In this book the reader will discov er the "jug of wine" that sealed contracts, administrators whose town plansfoundered on the independence of the colonists, a surgeon who ruined himse lf in an attempt to keep up with his brother, the Montreal nuns who feared peeping toms, the "missing" workers who were found in taverns, and the patient craftsmen who endured the scrutiny of amateur experts. Included is the story of an ingenious building technique developed in the St. Lawrence valley that spread across Canada to become the first "national" style of construction. This is a human and lively chronicle based on pioneer research." - from the dj. Very good in lightly browned, unclipped dustjacket. 25.00
