The world from a tilted

angle on the glass,
can have a strange view.

This lovely little book has dressed itself in nakedness and a few well placed balloons! ;)

And so it's ready to join the Party for the 2016 Birthday Rabck Group! :D

Here's to a new dance for a new year! So slip on your party shoes and dust off your hat... It's your day. It's your time. Give them enough to talk about for a good hundred years! >;)

I tried really hard to get into this book, but I just couldn't get into his writing style. Will be moving it along soon. Thanks again for the birthday present HI77!

I'm claiming this from the Travel Narrative bookbox. Just in time for Canada Day!

Later: I enjoyed this look across Canada, though I found myself more drawn to the sections on Quebec and Ontario, as I've actually been there and have at least some basis for comparison {wry grin}. Though now I want to visit more of the territories - Newfoundland and the Maritimes are potentially reachable via (long) road-or-ferry trip...

Anyway, I found a nice mix of historical information and local oddities, with the author's personal touches. I did wonder how much things have changed since the book came out in the late '80s, but I found plenty of familiar notes, not least the author's praise of Aux Vieux Canadiens, the vintage-1677 house in old Quebec City - I'd had a marvelous meal there last year when visiting the city with a friend.

While the writing wasn't always as scintillating as I'd have liked, I did appreciate this opportunity to visit so much of Canada vicariously!
