1917 Radcliffe, Thomas Authentic Letters From Upper Canada. Including Canadian Field Sports by Thomas McGrath.
Toronto:Macmillan 1953. Hardcover. Good. Octavo 
207 pp.

"The letters tell the story of the settling of two families in Upper Canada in the 1820's and early 1830's, and they tell it with vividness and truthfulnesss and, above all, with a sense of humour. The Magrath family settled in Erindale, near York (Toronto), in 1827, and the Radcliffs at Adelaide, near London, in 1832. The letters describe the hardships of crossing the Atlantic, the roughness of the roads, the ways of travelling , and the Spartan first days of settlement.

Next they turn to a description of Upper Canada as they found it, its people, and its institutions. And a final section is made up of letters by Thomas Wm. Magrath describing the field sports, hunting, shooting and fishing, of those days. A more delightful and informative account of early life in Canada would be hard to find."

"Undoubtedly the most definitive assessment of the civilization of Scandinavia in the Viking Age and in the early medieval period ever published, this volume coincides with a major exhibition that opened at the Grand Palais in Paris and traveled to Berlin and Copenhagen in fall 1992. Described here by scholars from fifteen countries and richly illustrated with superb examples of coins, gold and silver jewelry, manuscripts and maps, ships and weaponry, textiles and household objects, the Viking culture emerges as a highly developed and complex. This book also tells the story of how the Scandinavian countries became Christian nations and entered into the full community of Christian Europe, receiving and giving to the civilization of Europe.
