"From the boundary of Manitoba north to Lake Winnipeg, a distance of one hundred miles, runs an historic highway, which, as it passes through the City of Winnipeg, is known as Main Street. A buffalo trail, an Indian pathway, it saw later explorers, merchant adventurers, missionaries, soldiers and lawgivers, who crossed it on their way westward. It felt the surge of every tide of settlement. Here the mystery of the West was glimpsed. Here its spirit was felt, its music heard."

An illustrated history of Manitoba and Winnipeg's "Main Street" highway, told in verse. Each page has an accompanying illustration. Topics and illustrations include bison [buffalo]; Indigenous peoples; voyageurs; missions and missionaries; settlers; soldiers and historic battles; farmsteads; immigrants and immigration; religion; and the railway.
