Overview

When Canada became a country in 1867, it included only four eastern provinces-Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. In the next few decades, however, the country would grow and expand quickly, stretching to take in land extending across the continent. By the beginning of the next century, Canada would touch the shores of three oceans. Growth did not always come easily, of course.

Overview

When Canada became a country in 1867, it included only four eastern provinces-Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. In the next few decades, however, the country would grow and expand quickly, stretching to take in land extending across the continent. By the beginning of the next century, Canada would touch the shores of three oceans. Growth did not always come easily, of course. Canada would deal with rebellions, the difficulties associated with building a transcontinental railway, and with the problem of how to attract settlers to the prairies.

This book tells the story of how Canada grew into the West. Here, you will read about Louis Riel and the Metis, struggling to have their rights represented by the Canadian government. You will learn about the Canadian Pacific Railway and the scandals and setbacks associated with it. You will read about the Klondike Gold Rush, the last great gold rush on the continent, and about immigrants traveling from across Europe to live in the "Last, Best West." In these last decades of the nineteenth century, Canada developed swiftly into a large and modern country.
