Read the amazing stories of five pioneers who helped shape our country.
  • Till the soil with Louis Hébert, who came from Paris to become Canada's first pioneer.
  • Cling to a voyageur canoe with Marie-Anne Gaboury, as terrible storms strike Lake Superior.
  • Fight along side John Crysler, a Loyalist defending his land.
  • Flee a burning cabin with Susanna Moodie, an English gentlewoman roughing it in the bush.
  • And thresh grain with Wasyl Eleniak, who journeyed from Ukraine to build a future on the prairies.
Canadian Pioneers is designed for young Canadians to read themselves, and for all Canadians to enjoy. Author Maxine Trottier is a former elementary teacher with a passion for history. She has written many children's books.
