Scapes imagined and real, dredging metallic to l said to “catalogue a sort of “culture of lost Canada” and present it in ways nearly remembered.” the Last track: For a more Complete story includes the following quote “For a more complete Story, why not contact the Canadian wild life service in Ottawa” that sounds like it comes straight for Who’s Who of the Hinterland.
