Title:
The big book of Canada
Summary:
From Nunavut's Barren Lands to the Torngat Mountains of Newfoundland, from Quebec's Saguenay Fjord to the pingos of the Northwest Territories, The Big Book of Canada explores the many fascinating places that make up this vast land. Christopher Moore, one of the country's foremost historians, brings each province and territory to life, drawing together history and politics, the famous and the infamous, the people, places, and industries that have defined a nation. For good measure, he's added a few fun elements into the mix -- a recipe for poutine rapee, a Newfoundland dictionary, and a roster of daredevils who've braved Niagara Falls among them -- to spice up his affectionate and fact-filled text. The book is lavishly illustrated with more than 140 modern and archival photographs and 110 original pieces by the well-known artist Bill Slavin.
