This firsthand account immerses the reader in the world of early-nineteenth-century life in both New York & lower Canada. Whether enduring the choking dust raised by a stagecoach, the frustration and delays caused by bad roads, or the wonders and occasional dangers of packet boat travel on the newly completed Erie Canal, all are brought to life by Scott’s pen. This journal is a unique blend of travel and domestic insights.
