Historical Atlas of Canada: Canada's History Illustrated with Original Maps
Maps tell the story in this innovative volume, now available for the first time in paperback. And the story of Canada they tell is profoundly engrossing and rewarding. The Historical Atlas of Canada covers a period of a thousand years and contains essentially all the historically significant maps of the country. Gathered from major archives and libraries all over the world, they include treasures from the National Archives of Canada -- many never before published -- and many from the archives of the Hudson's Bay Company. Included are maps by the founder of New France, Samuel de Champlain; by Philip Turnor and Peter Fidler. There are English maps and French maps; Spanish maps and Russian maps; American, Italian and Dutch maps as well as maps drawn by Native people such as the Beothuk, Blackfoot and Cree. Canada's colourful past unfolds in sumptuous visual detail -- history seen from a whole new perspective.
