Part history, part travelogue, this charming guide introduces the unassuming but unforgettable people who live and work in the Eastern Townships—the tree-clad, rolling foothills nestled between the St. Lawrence River and the American border. Written in a tongue-in-cheek style by an award-winning journalist, the accounts of quirky people and interesting towns provide plenty of armchair reading—and the attractions of the area will surely beckon to travelers who hope to find the quintessential Canada.
Nick Fonda is president of the Richmond County Historical Society and a regular contributor to the Quebec Heritage News, the Record, and the Townships Outlet. He lives in Richmond, Quebec.

Editorial Reviews

"We are introduced to an astonishing array of characters who show by their occupations and idiosyncrasies how connected they are to the land. . . . Fonda has taken the landscape and the people of his corner of the Townships and stitched them together into a glorious quirky quilt -- the way the land itself is stitched together by its roads." —Quebec Heritage News
