Synopsis

A dynamic army officer and sportsman, Sir Richard Levinge (1811-84) was an unlikely chronicler of nature. However, service during the suppression of the French Canadian uprising of 1837-8 led to a personal fascination with the people, flora and fauna of the Canadian colonies. Published in 1846, this two-volume description of travel through eastern Canada and the United States reflects the author's passion for hunting and the outdoor life. In Volume 2 readers are introduced to the American swamps, Montreal, the Great Lakes and Niagara Falls, as well as the continent's exotic fauna in the form of racoons, snakes and bald eagles. Illustrated with a dramatic lithograph of a caribou hunt, this work conveys both the dangers and the attractions for the hunter and traveller of the North American continent at this period, and includes a sardonic account of the military activity which caused Levinge to be there.
