"The Canadian imagination, as elusive as the Canadian identity, is nevertheless a reality. Henry Beissel finds its constant source of strength and renewal in the wonder of our northland ... This epic is the first to see it in its entirety, as a matrix which binds the whole together in a national mythology." – F.R. Scott (on Cantos North)
