This is an illustrated book for adults about the history of Canada right from the beginning of confederation. It is fitting, since we will turn 150 years old next year!
From the Ice Age through to the present, The Story of Canada tells the epic saga of the people, places and events that have shaped Canada over thousands of years. Spend an icy summer day in the Arctic, seven hundred years ago!
Meet Peter Easton, the Pirate Admiral as he prepares to set sail in search of Spanish treasure galleons. Wake up at dawn, ready for the thrill of the buffalo hunt.
The reader can also watch as Henry Hudson’s crew sets him adrift in Hudson Bay.
You can also experience the first railway journey from coast to coast.
Or, you can join the fight onto Juno Beach during the D-Day invasions.
This is a definitive book on Canada’s history for young and old readers.
I love books like this which encompass so much of our vast and beautiful country!
I also learned a lot! For instance, I didn’t know that for centuries ice covered much of our land! There were no forests, plants, animals or people!
The illustrations are grand and wonderful too. They will take the reader deeper into the history of Canada.
