"George Woodcock's lively descriptions are enhanced by more than 250 black and white illustrations, many never published before and others proven favourites. These, together with 16 pages of full colour, bring a panorama of Canadian impressions from early Eskimo carvings and the sketch books of Yukon hopefuls to the artistic lineage of such artists as Jack Shadbolt and Alex Colville and the tracings of modern Canadian architecture. (He) punctuates his new insights into the Canadian style with 30 delightfully candid and often humorous profiles of some of the great regional figures from Samuel Hearne to Camillien Houde, from Joseph Brant to Joey Smallwood, from Amor de Cosmos to Margaret Laurence and from Tiktak to Donald Creighton."
