A Yankee in Canada (Literary Naturalist) (Hardcover)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
A YANKEE IN CANADA is Henry Thoreau's description of his excursion into the French-Canadian province of Quebec in the fall of 1850. Although he later remarked that what he "got by going to Canada was a cold," this book is fascinating account of the great American writer's culture shock experienced during his only international experience.
