A central and illuminating book, L'Acadie is concerned not just with New Brunswick and Nova Scotia but also with garrisons as far west as London. Activities, decisions and dramatic movements give a rare sense of plot to this travel story of canals and cavalry and winter carnivals" - "While in Canada he travelled about the province, taking a keen interest in the places he visited and the people he met such as Thomas Talbot, William Dunlop, Archibald MacNab, and the pirate Bill Johnston. He met Charles Dickens and his wife when they visited Kingston, and he was in Quebec during the great fire of 1845. His impressions of his Canadian travels are given in this his second work on Canada".
