The world may be searched in vain for a stretch of territory containing within the same area such a diversity of features to attract all classes of summer visitors. The Intercolonial and the Prince Edward Island lines constitute The Peoples Railway in more than a limited or even national sense. At the western terminus of these lines is the metropolis of Canada, the great and ever growing city of Montreal.
To the eastward of this, down to the shores of the open Atlantic and through Prince Edward Island, is a wonderful summer country. So vast is this tourist territory and so many and diverse are its features, that no one can hope to enjoy them all in the course of a single season. The man who wants the luxury of modern hotels while sojourning in historic cities need limit his pleasures only by the length of his purse.
Equally great is the opportunity of him whose means are small and with whom economy is an object. All classes may adapt their excursions to their circumstances, and in no country of the world may so much enjoyment be had for so small an outlay of money.There is so much to be had at such trifling expense that the question of cost is less of a consideration than that of how to best improve the opportunities in the limited period of a summer outing. This depends on what is sought. For the sportsman there are unrivaled forests and streams, lakes and shores.
For hundreds of miles the eye of the artist may revel in the sight of the grandest of scenery upon the mountains, in the valleys and by the sea. The student may tread where some of the great pages of history have been written in blood.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
