A Traveller's History of Canada gives a comprehensive survey of the country's past from the earliest times right through to the present. It begins with the first immigrants to arrive well over 15,000 years ago who traveled across a land bridge from Siberia to Alaska. These native cultures saw a succession of Westerners from the early, mainly unsuccessful Viking settlements, to the British and French in later centuries attempting to make life possible on what could be an inhospitable landscape. The European powers brought with them not only a thirst for land but also their own quarrels, which resulted in battles and skirmishes with each other, and with America after its independence. The battles continued into the twentieth century - but only on the cultural and language front between the French and English. The impact of the two world wars and its relationship with its brash neighbor, the U.S., are thoroughly discussed. The book is brought fully up to date with a profile of modern Canada, its successes, present difficulties and a prognosis for the new millennium.

More Description

The Traveller's History series is designed for travellers who want more historical background on the country they are visiting than can be found in a tour guide. Each volume offers a complete and authoritative history of the country from the earliest times up to the present. A Gazetteer cross-referenced to the main text pin-points the historical importance of sights and towns.

Illustrated with maps and line drawings, this literate and lively series makes ideal before-you-go reading, and is just as handy tucked into suitcase or backpack.
