"A travelogue of Quebec province, complete with stereotypes, emphasizing tourist attractions. There are sequences on skiing; on Montreal and the usual sites; on summer resorts with fishing, swimming, and golfing; on picturesque villages, farms with farmers tilling the soil handicraft workers, a woman baking bread in an out-door kiln; and on the perennial Gaspé fisherman working in the harbour at Percé. Cities visited are Montreal, Trois-Rivières, Cap-de-la-Madeleine, and Quebec City. From there, the tourist drives up to Tadoussac, cross the river by ferry and visit Gaspé."
