Romantic Canada
Publisher's Foreword

We are proud to announce what we think will come to be regarded as a realty outstanding bock of travel. We think it fitting that the first important book in this category which we have published should treat of our own country.

'"Romantic Canada" aims to give, and from the hands of two women singularly fitted to give it, the story of Canada in the romance of its simple industries simply accomplished. It gives the story, in word and n picture, of all sorts and conditions of folk, as they are to be found in the faraway and little-visited territories of the Dominion. Author and artist have left the beaten track, for it s in the highways and by-ways that this particular Canada, which is passing as we grow in population, and as steel links territory to territory the more easily and the more quickly, is to be found. The photographs and discussion of this hinterland cf Canada are quite unique in the history of Canadian literature and photographic art.

The author and artist have gone from Canadian coast to Canadian coast. They have thought it not unwise to include matter descriptive of their travels in Labrador and Newfoundland.

The author and artist and ourselves desire to say "Thank you" to all those who have helped to make this book what it !s. Specifically we are indebted to "Asia, the Magazine of the Asiatic Society", for permission to reproduce the photographs bearing the captions "Domesticity" and "Pulling Flax"; to the "Century Magazine" in the same regard as to "Hearty at Eighty", "Island Woman of St. Pierre et Miquelcn"', and "The Figure on the Bow"; to "Town and Country", as to "Fort Mississauga", and "View from His Britannic Majesty George Ill's Chapel to the Mohawks, near Brantford"; to the "Canadian Home Journal" as to "Early Home of Alexander Graham Bell", and "Drawing Water from the Columbia"; and to the Toronto "Saturday Night" as to "An Old Ontario Homestead".

We are also vastly indebted to the editor and proprietors of "The Canadian Magazine".
