book, is all the trivia and facts about Canada anyone needs to
There are stories of important Canadian artifacts and history, from ancient dinosaur bones in Alberta to relics from the Titanic disaster in the Maritimes. All regions are covered, as well as important figures like John Molson, Elizabeth Arden, and Terry Fox. Uncover strange and fascinating facts about dozens of famous people, places, and products that have their roots in the Great White North.
Quizzes throughout the book will test your knowledge of popular culture, sports, history, entertainment and much more. Some of the items are "classics." Others are little know facts. Approximately 25 percent of the material has never before appeared in print, including a smattering of Americana to test your knowledge of our neighbours to the south. This fascinating Big Book brings together for the first time in one package the most notable facts and trivia from the archives of the Trivia Guys' collection.
Trivia Guys Mark Kearney and Randy Ray have written several best-selling books including The Great Canadian Book of Lists, The Great Canadian Trivia Book, I Know That Name!, and Whatever Happened To...? Catching Up with Canadian Icons.
