"My country isn't a country, it is winter!" sings the poet Gilles Vigneault . . . Indeed, Quebec is winter, snow, cold, and freezing winds.

How can you write a book about a region and include NO maps?!  I'm only 100 pages into this book, but I am dismayed by the fact that the author never SHOWS all these areas he discusses.  Ii shouldn't need to go the Google to find my own maps.  That's why I bought a book.
