Review:

"... a valuable resource that provides a fascinating example of the imperial vision. Woolford's daily, selective (often suggested by Lord Dalhousie) visual representations of the British expedition constitute a discrete historical memorial to the British perspective of the imperial engagement." - Prof. Carman Miller McGill University "... opens upon the parallel paths left by two travellers and participants in the life and discovery of new and exotic material realities now made available for all those interested in the visual and social archives of Canada." - Prof. John Fleming University of Toronto"
