This gorgeous book is the must-have geography resource for every young reader. Leading the reader across Canada, province by province, veteran writer Christopher Moore introduces the things that make this country unique. Each province and territory is explored and defined not only by its physical features, but also by its history, the people that make up its population, and the industry and culture that distinguish each region. The book is lavishly illustrated by well-known artist Bill Slavin, and features 150 full color photos.

The gift book, reference book, and just plain fun-to-read book of the season – and many seasons to come!

From Nunavut's Barren Lands to the Torngat Mountains of Newfoundland, from Quebec's Saguenay Fjord to the pingos of the Northwest Territories, The Big Book of Canada explores the many fascinating places that make up this vast land. Christopher Moore, one of the country's foremost historians, brings each province and territory to life, drawing together history and politics, the famous and the infamous, the people, places, and industries that have defined a nation. For good measure, he's added a few fun elements into the mix -- a recipe for poutine rapee, a Newfoundland dictionary, and a roster of daredevils who've braved Niagara Falls among them -- to spice up his affectionate and fact-filled text. The book is lavishly illustrated with more than 140 modern and archival photographs and 110 original pieces by the well-known artist Bill Slavin. Maps of each of the provinces and territories, a list of further readings, and a useful index make The Big of Canada as functional as it is fascinating.… (more)
