Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0141310596, Mass Market Paperback)

Who was Jeanne Mance? What is Shawnawditith's claim to fame? Why does everybody make such a fuss about Louis Riel?

This terrific collection of concise biographies introduces us to some of Canadian history's most illustrious and unusual people. These are people who've had lakes, rivers, streets and schools named after them, statues and monuments erected in their honour, books written and even movies made about their lives.

But who are they and what contribution have they made to Canada? From explorers to native leaders, from unlikely heroes to visionary peacemakers, from pioneers to politicians, this lively, fascinating volume looks at forty-one movers and shakers of the "new world."

Through these riveting stories, we learn what life was like in early Canada, and how one individual can contribute to, shape and even change the course of Canadian history.
