The story of Canada comes rousingly alive in this book. Dramatic text, detailed maps and a treasure-house of illustrations take you to where Canadian history was made – and can still be seen. In Heritage of Canada you visit battlefields, forts, outposts…ghost towns, ruins, reconstructions…shanties, mansions…historic trails by land and water – 591 Heritage Sites in all.
Here are the rebellions, explorations, voyages, treks, scandals, intrigues, defeats and triumphs of Canada’s past. Here too are the individuals (great and unsung) who created that past – prospectors, foot soldiers, pirates, coureurs de bois, homesteaders, sea captains, buffalo hunters, aristocrats.
