Regular price $125.00 Sale

Known as "the Cheese poet," James McIntyre never allowed the derision of his work to dampen his enthusiasm for writing it. His zeal for verse was matched only by his love for Canada. "Fair Canada is our Theme, Land of rich cheese, milk and cream." Verses about land clearing, Canadian rivers and lakes, Niagara, various Canadian cities and towns, Canadian authors, a body found in Toronto Bay, etc. A work of startlingly poor literature worthy of any collection with a sense of humour or smell.
