|A Brief History of
Canada provides a concise, highly-readable introduction to the growth and
development of a unique land and its people. Veteran historian Roger Riendeau
masterfully surveys the origins of Canada from its First Peoples through
European contact, the rise and fall of the French Empire, English Conquest, the
road to nationhood, and the struggles of a complex society to the end of the
second millenium. Complete with text illustrations, maps, and a comprehensive
index, A Brief History of Canada is a readily accessible reference for students
and an engaging narrative for anyone who wants to learn more about this diverse
and often enigmatic land.
