Campbell's goal: "to describe the great natural features of the land, in its broader characteristics - its coasts, rivers, mountains, lakes and prairies, those physical beauties and sublime effects of nature for which the region is specially famous. With this he has attempted to depict the seasons, and the beauty of the Canadian woods. In addition there is given a brief sketch of the settlement and development of the different communities, with special reference to the great centers of provincial and racial activities, and a reference to the people, its origins, composite ideals, and the leading actors on its historical stage of progress and accomplishment." - from Author's note. A fine, superior example. Seldom seen as such.
