The reader is taken on a fascinating cross-Canada journey, visiting the people, geography, history and idiosyncrasies of this great country. The author acts as your travelling companion and tour guide. Buckle up your seat belt and prepare for a fun-filled trip. You will visit all of the major traveler's destinations, but also many out-of-the-way, special corners of the nation. You will learn many interesting vignettes of Canadian history and pick up local folklore and anecdotes along the way.

There are 14 maps to help you follow the route of the journey. In the appendices are 'top-ten' lists and a trivia quiz to remind you of the trip and to recall the experiences.
