"No Canadian stands less in need of an introduction to his fellow-countrymen than A.Y. Jackson. In remote French Canadian villages, where his great snowshoes caused him to be known as Père Raquette, on the islands of Georgian Bay, in prairie towns, on cattle ranches up the Cariboo in British Columbia, in the Barren Lands and the Arctic North, A.Y. has long been a familiar and much honoured presence. He has taken all Canada for his parish and for almost fifty years he has roamed about it, sketching, painting and interpreting its landscapes." - from the dustjacket.
