This is a deeply weird publication: A condensed version of a two-volume history of the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railroad, which was the basis for an expensive miniseries by the CBC. The book is an excellent read; the weird part is the illustrations, which are stills from the TV show. So that what is represented as a picture of the Prime Minister of Canada is really a picture of the actor who played the Prime Minister on TV.
