Life in a Quebec manor-house at the turn of the century is colourfully described in this biography of his childhood by Robert de Roquebrune. Skilfully woven into the texture of reminiscences about his own growing up are absorbing accounts of the early history of Canada. Through his ancestors, whose careers and personalities live vividly in accounts preserved by the family, there is a strong feeling for the continuity of life and traditions from the France of Louis XIII to what was to become of the province of Quebec.

This is the first time this classic of French Canada has been translated into English.
