Publisher Description

Do you understand Canada’s complex and intricate history? Are you looking for a compact, concise, and all-encompassing summary of the world’s second-largest country by total area?

Canada is a land renowned for its stunning beauty and abundant natural resources but is rarely considered to have a particularly captivating history. Its people, stereotyped as polite and friendly, are seldom viewed as they are: the products of an intricate and complex struggle. Yet in truth, Canada and its people are the results of centuries of cultural collisions, compromises, and collaborations.  

From the footsteps of the first humans on the North American continent, Canada has grown and prospered thanks to the continual crossroads of empires that have marked the land from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

In A Brief History of Canada, you will discover how a rancorous European rivalry drove settlers to the rocky Canadian shoreline and into the diverse and multi-layered world of the First Nations and Inuit. Follow the French fur trader through the Great Lakes, meet the Métis on the Canadian prairies, and bear witness to the juggernaut of the British Empire. Learn why Canada is much more than meets the eye.
