: From the epic journeys into the unknown by the first people who crossed the Bering 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.
The most successful children's book ever published in Canada has been updated and is now available in a magnificent new paperback edition. The Story of Canada won the Mr. Christie Book Award for Text - Ages 9 to 14, the IODE Book Award - Toronto Chapter, the Children's Literature Roundtables of Canada Information Book Award, and the Ottawa Valley Council International Reading Association Children's Book Award. The hardcover edition is now in its third printing and has sold over 70,000 copies.
Authors Janet Lunn and Christopher Moore tell the country's story through rich narrative, recreations of daily life, folk tales, and fascinating facts. The book is splendidly illustrated with original paintings by Alan Daniel, as well as hundreds of historical photographs, maps, paintings, posters, and cartoons. And this updated edition takes Canada's story right up to the present day, with new material on the Charlottetown Accord, the resurgence of Quebec separatism, and Canadian peacekeeping efforts in the former Yugoslavia. The result is a highly readable history that is as beautiful as it is informative, an essential reference for every Canadian family.
