Log Driver's Waltz

"If you ask any girl from the parish around
What pleases her most from her head to her toes
She’ll say I’m not sure that it’s business of yours
But I do like to waltz with a log driver."

With illustrations celebrate the flora, fauna, and folk art of Canada, The Log Driver's Waltz is based on the perennially popular Canadian folk song and animated short film of the same name.

A young woman's parents are keen for her to marry. The town’s well-to-do doctors, merchants, and lawyers try to impress her, but it’s the humble log driver—with his style, grace, and joie de vivre—who captures her attention. When she and the log driver finally meet on the dance floor, their joy leaps off the page.
