Reviews

Finalist for the 2018 Ottawa Book Award for English Non-Fiction

"Well known for his books and articles on sports, Roy MacGregor has done Canadians a tremendous favour by showing not only how our rivers can provide tranquility and diversion but also how important it is that we protect and nourish our river system, an asset we must cherish." --Winnipeg Free Press "On your next [paddling] trip, may I suggest you bring Original Highways along. It would make great campfire reading." --The Sun Times "MacGregor expands on his acclaimed Globe and Mail series on Canada's rivers, bringing these historic waterways, and the stories of those whose existence is inextricably linked to them, to remarkably vivid life." --Canadian Geographic "When I see a book about Canada or individual Canadians with Roy MacGregor's name on it, I feel compelled to pick it up. . . . Mr. MacGregor writes lyrically and convincingly, opening to us Canadian experiences that have lain buried. A joy to read." --The Millstone Praise for Canoe Country

"[MacGregor] has his creative fingers on the pulse of our national imagination like few others.... A compelling storyteller who, like Pierre Berton before him, transforms historical research into high drama, elevating ordinary people who do extraordinary things into admirable folk heroes. I couldn't put Canoe Country down." --Waterloo Region Record

"Canoe Country is a rollicking good read--engaging, thought-provoking and, at times, startling." --The Globe and Mail
