Edited by Henry Beston and Introduction by Daniel Payne

  • This beloved story of the St. Lawrence River is now available once again to a new generation of readers.
  • Beston's biographer, Daniel Payne, offers a critical examination of the work, placing it within the context of the author's life and other significant writings.
  • The Group of Seven's A.Y. Jackson provided 24 original sketches for the first edition, which are now restored to print.
  • This beautifully written account of the river's past and present was crafted by a master storyteller.
  • A self-proclaimed naturalist/writer, Beston was uniquely situated to observe and write about the natural environment of the waterway.
