Overview

Discover Québec's intriguing mix of cultures hand-in-hand with leading authorities on the region.

This travel guide offers a unique eight-day tour, from Canada's national capital, Ottawa, Ontario, to the heart of French-speaking Canada, Quebec City. Drive through the cities and countryside of New France with this eye-opening book, and you'll find out just what makes this region such a special place. The authors comment on everything that's likely to catch your attention--from the lay of the land to the taste of the food, from bilingual signs to immigrant communities where neither French nor English is heard, from the old seigneurie's long narrow fields to Montréal's checkerboard of streets, from Mohawk Indian reserves to the transmission towers of Hydro-Québec. 

The Heart of French Canada makes the best of traveling companions: compact, informed, and lively. You'll want to read and re-read it as you plan, take, and relive your trip!
