Abstract:

"Country Post strives to recreate the postal world of the period 1880 to 1945. Never before or since have postal communications had a more immediate impact on the lives of Canadians, transforming rural life well into the 20th century." "Based on thorough archival research, Country Post is also enriched by the insightful perspective of twenty-eight postmasters from all regions of Canada who were interviewed for this study. The smooth operation of the rural postal service was very much the result of their efforts."--Jacket.
