   schema:reviewBody ""Over long distances, in all sorts of weather and amidst the dangers of war, pirates and a myriad of other hazards, the growing colony of Canada was entirely dependent upon letters to communicate news, commerce, loneliness or desire." "Until Next Year recreates this exciting and engaging world, when writing a letter was considered an art and when creating paper itself took the patience and skill of a seasoned artisan. Using the private letters of Canadians and their correspondents, Harrison details how letters were written, how they were delivered, who wrote them and why. Beyond the letters themselves, this story is amply enriched with an abundance of maps, photographs and prints."--Jacket." ;
