The Spirit of Canada: Canada's Story in Legends, Fiction, Poems, and Songs

The Spirit of Canada celebrates all that makes us Canadian.

Bursting with stories, songs, poems, and legends, this remarkable collection is a must-have for any home library. With 100 entries and over 150 illustrations by some of Canada’s most prestigious children’s artists, The Spirit of Canada will prove to be a useful reference guide as well as an entertaining keepsake for generations to come. Readers are led on a journey that encompasses the discovery of the New World, early settlement, and Confederation, as well as Canadian humour and multiculturalism. The Spirit of Canada includes traditional pieces such as “The Cremation of Sam McGee” and “In Flanders Fields,” new classics such as Gordon Lightfoot’s “Canadian Railway Trilogy” and Roch Carrier’s “The Hockey Sweater,” and hidden gems such as “This Was My Brother,” by Mona Gould, and Duke Redbird’s “I am Canadian.”
