- Montreal, an island in the St. Lawrence River, is an emotional city. To walk its streets is to sense a mood -- sometimes warm, sometimes anxious, depending upon the political climate -- but always invigorating and vital. The Québécois culture offers a striking contrast to that of the rest of North America. Montreal is far more European, epicurean, and stylish than most -- or perhaps any -- other North American cities. This book will offer you a glimpse into the lives and attitudes of Montrealers, the beauty and rough charm of the city, and the rich historical legacy that informs its everyday life -- a daily life of stimulating sights, sounds, tastes, events, and people. It is a city that, once visited, is impossible to forget.
