A non fiction book by

In this delightful dockside reader, one of Canada''s great writers of the outdoors celebrates the Canadian cottage experience. Written in journal form, The Weekender takes us through a typical year -the pleasures, great and small, and the occasional pains-of cottage living. From that first, essential opening-day plunge into a still-frigid lake to the last leap in at the summer''s end, and everything in between, The Weekender reprises some of MacGregor''s classic writings from Cottage Life, The Globe and Mail, and the National Post, and includes some new material, too. It''s the perfect read for the cottage lover in all of us, a book to return to again and again, in summer and all year long.
