New from the author of The Slasher Killings and The Odyssey of John Anderson, Patrick Brode’s multi-volume The River and the Land is the first authoritative survey of Windsor-Essex history to be published since the 1950s. With sections on the impact of Confederation, Windsor’s role in the American Civil War, its leadership in street- car manufacturing, and the cultural tensions that existed between its primary immigrant groups—French, English, Irish, Scottish— Volume One charts much previously undocumented territory, and explores the region’s history to the turn of the century. Intelligent, thorough, compelling, and readable, The River and the Land is guaranteed to set a new bar for area historians, and will be adopted as a standard reference for decades to come.
