I enjoyed reading this book in Canada's 150th year as a country. Jane Urquhart has taken 50 objects and written very short articles about Canada surrounding each one. What I like is the way Ms. Urquhart has used the objects to tell the story of Canada...not of the object itself, but of what it symbolizes of our history, our people, our country. Lovely illustrations of each object by Scott McKowen make this book a keeper. ( )

A couple of years ago, when publisher Patrick Crean invited me to mark Canada's 2017 sesquicentennial by writing about fifty objects, my first reaction was one of alarm. (Introduction)
