This unique perspective of 19th Century Canada is seen through the eyes of the Dutch elite, from dukes to financiers of the Canadian Pacific Railway, travelling from the east to the west of Canada. Their journals, articles, manuscripts, letters and books have been translated and compiled for the first time in this book by Jan Krijff and Herman Ganzevoort. This material adds to the travel stories already known from French and English travellers of the time.
