'Neil J. Lehto's Algonquin Elegy: Tom Thomson's Last Spring, is both a labor of love and a labor of gargantuan effort to come to some understanding, nine decades on, of exactly what happened that summer of 1917. Perhaps no one has ever worked as hard to know the unknowable and, in doing so, he has contributed invaluably to the greatest story in all of Canadian art. Neil's passion for Tom Thomson shines through as passionately on each page as Thomson's passion for Algonquin Park shines though on each painting he left behind that last Spring."
