|In taking up Pierre Trudeau's call to Canadian youth of another era to explore our vast country, writer/photographer Matthew Jackson revives the lost art of hitchhiking. Jackson's charm and humour shine throughout his storytelling and may partly explain how, relying on the kindness of strangers, he managed to visit all three coasts.
In travelling to such diverse places as Quebec, Burnt Church, N.B., and Dawson, Yukon, the first-time author invites us to re-examine our perceptions of Canada, warts and all, and is unafraid to expose his own naivete while seeking a better understanding of people and their situations. Jackson's appetite for adventure, as well as the characters he meets along the way, could well inspire others to take to the road.
