Our American Cousins

The United States through Canadian Eyes

edited by Thomas Axworthy

Our American Cousins is a witty, provocative, often poignant encounter with neighbours who are a lot like us, and not like us at all.

Canadians are fascinated by Americans and infuriated by American ignorance of Canadian reality.  Yet is the Canadian view of the USA any less coloured by stereotypes and folk wisdom?  In this collection of stories, essays and poems, twenty-four of Canada's best-known writers venture across the border in search of America, and come home with some surprising results.
