Pp -248,+ 7 plates + double-page map. 8vo, red cloth, tan lettering to front board and spine. “The Young People of our neighboring Allies have a wonderful interpreter in Anne Merriman Peck. [...] Outwardly Canada may seem very much like our own country but Miss Peck's discerning eye discloses a great many vivid and highly interesting differences. She writes with great sympathy of French-Canadian boys and girls who still speak the language and maintain the customs inherited from Old France. She describes the fishing villages of the Maritime Provinces and the monster tides of the Bay of Fundy, catches the spirit of Ottawa, the capital of Canada, gives a keen sense of the broad Prairie Provinces, and does full justice to the excitement of the famous Calgary Stampede. After a tour of beautiful British Columbia, she takes the reader into the undeveloped Northwest and describes the creation of the great "Alcan Highway." - from the dj. Contents : I. The Maritimes. 1.
