From the epic journeys into the unknown by the first people who crossed the Berring land bridge thousands of years ago to Roberta Bondar's landmark voyage into space, The Story of Canada is as vast in scope as the country itself. In this new fully updated paperback edition, authors Janet Lunn and Christopher Moore tell the country's story through rich narrative, recreations of daily life, folk tales, and fascinating facts. Alan Daniel's evocative original paintings, as well as several hundred historical photographs, maps, paintings, posters, and cartoons, make The Story of Canada as splendid to look at as it is fascinating to read.

A comprehensive and lively chronicle of the history of Canada from the end of the Ice Age to 1990 C.E. filled with period paintings and photographs and specially-commissioned illustrations, and anecdotes. The text may be read by a Grade 6 child and older although the subtle humour and irony may need an adult mind to recognize. The book concludes with a timeline of key events and an index. It might have benefited from a bibliography for further reading.
