I commence this chapter in the language of Leather Stocking:—“You know the Catskills, lad, for you must have seen them on your left, as you followed the river up from York, looking as blue as a piece of clear sky, and holding the clouds on their tops, as the smoke curls over the head of an Indian chief at a council-fire.” Yes, everybody is acquainted with the names of these mountains, but few with their peculiarities of scenery. They are situated about eight miles from the Hudson, rise to an average elevation of about thirty-five hundred feet, and running in a straight line from north to south, cover a space of some twenty-five miles. The fertile valley on the east is as beautiful as heart could desire; it is watered by the Kauterskill, Plauterkill and Esopus creeks, inhabited by a sturdy Dutch yeomanry, and is the agricultural mother of Catskill, Saugerties and Kingston. The upland on the west for about forty miles is rugged, dreary and thinly settled, but the winding valley of Schoharie beyond is possessed of many charms peculiarly American. The mountains themselves are covered with dense forests abounding in cliffs and waterfalls, and for the most part untrodden by the footsteps of man. Looking at them from the Hudson, the eye is attracted by two deep hollows, which are called “Cloves.”

In this survey and analysis of long poems written about Canada between 1690 and 1900, D.M.R. Bentley establishes literary contexts for a greatly neglected period of Canadian literature. He also provides critical discussions of the poems, addresses larger questions of tradition and intertextuality, and demonstrates the existence of a continuity in Canadian writing from the colonial to the post-colonial period.

If resort life is what you crave, the long ramble in the Charlevoix region of Quebec offered by Philippe Dubé's book provides the desired change of scene. Using many photographs and illustrations of the elegant resort homes of the area, the people who built and inhabited them, and the tourists who flocked there during the summer, Dubé captures both the untamed beauty and the unique history of this remote resort region. From the introduction: Charlevoix sits on the north shore of the St Lawrence River in a fertile valley first colonized by the merchanys of Québec. Its early development under the French Régime was sporadic, but in due course the commercial climate improved. In 1762 Messrs John Nairne and Malcolm Fraser, officers of the Regiment of Fraser Highlanders, began work on their respective properties of Murray Bay and Mount Murray, granted by Governor James Murray. In their time the area was already renowned for its scenery and picturesque way of life, and vistitors would come from countirs far off as Scotland to stay for several months. Ever since, Charlevoix has fascinated travellers and charmed summer vacationers searching for peace and quiet. The locals, for their part, have welcomed outsiders. For over two centuries, then, Charlevoix has been a meeting place for the rural culture of the French and the urban culture that is by tradition predominantly Anglo-Saxon.
