  • About the Edition

    In the fall of 1850 Henry David Thoreau embarked upon an excursion into the French-Canadian province of Quebec, with stops in Montreal and Quebec City. His reactions to the foreign country are mixed and ambivalent: he is critical of Canada"s Old World Catholicism, feudalism, and an alien British military presence while most of his references to America and Americans are favorable. But if one looks closely, positive reactions to Canadian society and negative reactions to American society do exist within the essay. A Yankee in Canada is a study in paradox, the paradox being due to a man stunned by his only international experience. Unlike the many facsimile reproductions available, this edition features a modern design that enhances readability.--Adapted from publisher"s description.
