Winner of the 2007 Canadian Culinary Book Award for Canadian Food Culture In Canadians at Table we learn about lessons of survival from the First Nations, the foods that fuelled fur traders, and the adaptability of early settlers to their new environment. As communities developed and transportation improved, waves of newcomers arrived, bringing memories of foods, beverages, and traditions they had known, which were almost impossible to implement in their new homeland. They discovered instead how to use native plants for many of their needs.

I don't know how I missed the part about this being a "history of Canada"---had I known the fun historical facts that were to be found in this, I would have picked it up a long time ago! Filled with rich history, nostalgic anecdotes, and lots of stuff that only Canadians would get, this book is great for anyone who has a love for Canada and it's history.

I really enjoyed reading about the Vikings in Canada---they're one of my favorite people groups to study. I did find that, the closer I got to modern times, the more I began to lose interest in the book. I actually skimmed the last 30 pages or so as it just wasn't holding my attention anymore.

I'm definitely interested in finding more about the Yukon's "Sourdough Festival"---sounds very unique! I'm also interested in learning more about the Women's Institutes. ( )
