Product Description

In 1845 Alexander Muir, a middle-aged Aberdeen lawyer, set off on a journey to Canada - to visit relatives and perhaps add a taste of adventure to an otherwise quiet life. Muir kept a diary (published here for the first time) which developed into a detailed journal providing fascinating accounts of an Atlantic crossing under sail, of travel in Canada by steamship and canoe, and of Canada and its people and settlements. This lovely illustrated edition published by the Aberdeen University Press takes you back in time.
