Fascinating Canada: A Book of Questions and Answers
Written by John Robert Colombo.
Published by Dundurn Press, 2011.
|Few people have read as
widely in the field of Canadiana as has John Robert Colombo. The curiosity of
this Toronto writer, editor, and anthologist knows few if any bounds when it
comes to the lore, literature, history, culture, and character of Canada. He
has an inquiring mind and he seems able to find national and even international
twists to subjects of interest or importance.
Fascinating Canada is the product of over half a century of research, reading, writing, and thinking. Here is a book about the Canadian past, present, and future. The majority of the questions are short whereas a good many of the answers are quite long discussions of the subjects at hand: concise questions followed by considered answers.
The information in Fascinating Canada is organized under four headings (People, Places, Things, Ideas) and there is a detailed Index for ready reference. This book may serve as a work of popular reference, but it has been written to stimulate inquiry and spark the sense of surprise in the minds of readers who know something about this amazing country but perhaps not as much as the author. Open this book and begin to read ... and match wits with author and researcher John Robert Colombo.
