A Motor Tour Through Canada (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from A Motor Tour Through CanadaWhen I set out to see Canada from the Tonneau, by motoring from Halifax to Victoria, I had grave doubts of ever being able to make my destination. People declared that there was no continuous road across the country, and that the broken chain of highways which was to be my medium of progression had so much of the element of chance and vagueness and uncertainty, so much of the promise of adventure and endemic primitiveness, thant of chance and vagueness and uncertainty, so much of the promise of adventure and endemic primitiveness, that I should be compelled to include it also in my discoveries.Canada, it was naively suggested, might best be seen by suspending my machine from a balloon and turning it into a kind of amphibious creature, which at times could crawl on the earth and at others fly in the air or swim in the lakes and rivers.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
