This is a travel book of the very best kind, because it not only gives information and personal impressions of places and people, but with its fine writing and beautifully vivid descriptions, puts us right there. The author takes his time, and by doing so, allows us to get a more complete and deeper understanding not just of the Canadian railroad system (which used to be the finest in North America) but of the country, its citizens and its problems.Of course, it strongly appealed to the gypsy in [...]

An excellent book with just the right amount of history and current Canadian culture and natural history with engaging biographies of people he met on his rail travels.

A lovely account on Canadian history and its rail.
