Henry David Thoreau, the "Cosmic Yankee", makes a witty 1100 mile foray into Canada. Suspense and excitement accompany every step of this intellectual invasion. Despite the apparent casualness of the writing, Thoreau put much of himself and his philosophy into this work. The score or more authors on Canadian history, travel, exploration, geography, and natural history which he read to prepare for this trip, and the liberal references to these throughout the text, are evidence of the thoroughness of his provision.

First published in 1866, A Yankee in Canada is one of a series of three famous travel books by Thoreau, including The Maine Woods (1864) and Cape Cod (1865).
