The main objective of the book is to make the traveller to Montréal and even the local inhabitants aware of the many different sites in Montréal that are often neglected. As mentioned in its introduction it will appeal to unique sort of travelers who are really explorers, "those who aren't content to collect exactly the same pile of snapshots taken from exactly the same spot as every other tourist."
Within the first few chapters the author informs us as to how to use the book. It is pointed out that the entries have been organized alphabetically and the table of contents lists all of the secret hideouts and relevant chapters. Once the traveller decides what interests them, he or she can refer to the relevant chapter and find out where the site is located and also have a good idea of why the site is considered to be secret.
For example the first chapter deals with Africa as it is mentioned that Montreal is home to many French-speaking Africans.
We are informed of the many activities related to African culture such as the annual Festival Nuits d'Afrique dedicated to French African culture and music.
Another chapter describes the St. Leonard Caves that is the only cave on the island of Montréal accessible to visitors.Read more ›
