Thoroughly annotated and illustrated, The Travellers: Canada to 1900 is an annotated bibliography of over 700 books that mapped the country in vivid descriptive prose. These travel books, beginning in 1557, reflect significant perceptions of the new northern world. The preface and introduction set out some of the criteria used by the bibliographers in choosing entries for inclusion in their work. Generally, only published works are included and. . .these works must include observations by the author on more than one region of the present geographic entity recognized as Canada.

Reviewers say:

Each of the entries in the bibliography includes a critical synopsis of the work. The entries are ordered chronologically by date of publication. The contributors include an author and title index as well as a subject index. This work would be of use to students interested in travel literature as a genre or, in fact, to anyone interested in Canadian history looking to buttress primary research with published works which may or may not be available in this country.
