The Laurentians are the hills north of Montreal that were originally the home of the Algonquin, enemies of the Iroquois, but were subsequently settled by French, Irish, Scottish and some American homesteaders. For the past 100 years, Montrealers, New Yorkers and other city dwellers have built vacation homes and shared these hills and lakes. The history of the naming of this area connects it to places as close as the indigenous people and as far-flung as Bengal and touches on the British and French empires and the American War of Independence"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo ///SIGNED ---GUARANTEED to be AVAILABLE///
