Adam Shoalts, one of Canada's foremost explorers, tells the stories behind centuries old maps, and how they came to shape what became Canada. It's a story that will surprise readers, and reveal the Canada we never knew was hidden. It brings to life the characters and the bloody disputes that forged our history, by showing us what the world looked like before it entered the history books. Combining storytelling, cartography, geography, archaeology and, of course, history, this book shows us Canada in a way we've never seen it before.
