A glorious, enduring miscellany of Pierre Berton's most sparkling occasional pieces.
Canada's most popular historian brings back lost treasures from his forty years of journalism covering Canada and the world. From the introduction:
This is more than an anthology. It is a resurrection. The various pieces that follow--essays, articles, bits of history, chapters from out-of-print books, the occasional verse, a stage sketch or two--were written over a period of forty years. All have long since been interred in the graveyard of dead manuscripts; gone, yes--but hopefully not forgotten, at least by me.
Some were written fifty years ago; none is in print today. Most were created long before the members of Generation X were born--back in the days of the Eaton's catalogue, when television had not yet arrived but was eagerly awaited; when pulp magazines dominated the newsstands, and the Toronto Star sold for three cents.
