The St. Lawrence, the Mackenzie, the Red, the Saint John, the Ottawa, the Saskatchewan, the Fraser: these are the rivers celebrated in the pages of an unusual and original book. It is a travel book, a record of journeys such as few Canadians are privileged to make. Its author travelled many thousands of miles to experience for himself the lure of the seven rivers. Yet it is also more than a travel book. It is the story of a nation, a swift and memorable sequence of landscape, a window on the past, a portrait of the writer himself. History, geology, personal anecdote, geography, classical allusion are woven together in a single fabric, changeable, fascination and haunting as the rivers themselves.
