Toronto Macmillan Company of Canada 1957 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good+ Allan Fleming, jacket design. 
138 pp, 8 1/2" H. "(S)hows Canada in an unfamiliar light - the light of an energetic and sometimes savage self-criticism. The stately pine (one of those symbolic vegetables that grow like weeds in the Canadian climate) is here blasted and eaten away by the native fires of satire and invective. But though the light is unfamiliar it has burnt steadily since the mid-nineteenth century. Almost as soon as Canadian poets appeared they were sounding a disrespectful note - a loud raspberry which echoes rudely down the corridors of history to our own day." Preface by David L. Thomson. Arranged under the headings: Prologue; True Patriot Love; Solid Citizens; Snow, Dust, Hail and Rust; The Purse-Proud Prelate; Indigenous Throstles; We Stand on Guard; Private Hells. Concludes with Notes; Acknowledgements and Index of Authors.
