"This is a different sort of travel book. It does not pretend to list all there is to be found in the Maritimes but recounts the adventures of the author as he motored along the coast, through forested i nland, in and out of delightful valleys, along pleasant vistas of farm lands and sleepy little rivers. He interviewed a variety of residents in the areas, learned their philosophy of life, listened to their favourite stories,the pride they have in their ancestry and countryside, opinions they hold about the world at large, and the things that matter in their own small spheres. The result is a narrative that breathes and throbs with the good lifeengendered in small communities, whether they be inland or beside the sea. Legends galore give colour to the history of this beautiful countryside. T he visitor who travels with this book as a guide will acquire he full flavour of Canada's "down-east," where salty little villages are spaced in unexpected places along a jigsaw coastline, where mellowed inland clearings offer drowsy summer afternoons and wild berries for the hiker, where there are camp sites that invite, where memories have gathered giving depth and meaning to the lives of a people who always have leisure to be kind." - from thedj. Tape ghosts to boards and endpapers, else very good in taped-down dust jacket. 18.00
