Providing observations of both the natural world and the human culture of Lower Canada, Sansom attempts to describe this area without comparison to her neighbor to the south. Sansom travels through the Lake Champlain region, Quebec, and Montreal, amongst other areas, while detailing the Peasantry of Canada, a History of Canada, the Language of the Iroquois, and providing a Description of the Beaver, in Canada. This is one of the first accounts of the people, places, and history of Lower Canada.
