A History of the Canadian Peoples
This book, a skilful condensation by the author of the two-volume version, describes the Native peoples before contact with early European visitors; exploration, settlement, and the development of British North America; the federation of the provinces of British North America in the Dominion of Canada; industrialization and urbanization; and social and political developments that conclude with a look at Canadian culture in the 1990s. The highly readable text, sidebars, suggestions for further reading, and illustrations offer an insightful look at Canadian history.
