Roads to Richmond is an unusual, almost quirky road book. Divided into four thematic parts and forty-eight short chapters, it works like a mosaic: the big picture is a moving portrait of a little known corner of Canada-Quebec's Eastern Townships. The inlaid stones that make up the mosaic are small gems in their own right: brief histories, candid snapshots, curious anecdotes, insightful observations, sobering reflections, stories to make you smile. Part contemporary history, part lyric narrative, it's a book that puts you behind the wheel and lets you meander along country roads to meet some of the people who make the Townships a unique place where Canada's two solitudes have grown entwined. A book for the Townships and beyond.
