You might think you know a lot about Canada-especially if you happen to live in North America. But in truth, it's surprising how little most of us know about Canadian history. Even though Canada is just across the border from the United States, Canada tends to get unfairly overshadowed. Nevertheless, Canada's history is a vibrant one.
In the first part of this book, you will discover:
- The origins of the First Nations, the artifacts they left behind, and how they are faring today
- The early French and English settlements and how they interacted with the First Nations
- Canada's participation in the world wars and the bravery of its soldiers on the battlefield
Most people have heard about the French and Indian War, but you will find that most history classes have "forgotten" to explore some of the most interesting and important facets of this conflict. The French and Indian War was not only about armed battles. It was also an extraordinary story of two empires with long-standing grudges that spilled over into the New World. This clash of titan-like powers shaped the fates of millions of people, numerous tribes, and multiple nations.
In the second part of this book, you will discover:
- Which well-known political leader in history inadvertently began the war in North America
- Which empires battled for control of North America and how beaver pelts caused tensions to boil over
- And how the seeds were sown for new nations to emerge
From 1897 to 1898, over 100,000 men and women walked, rode, paddled, and sailed thousands of miles to the Klondike River area of the Canadian Yukon in search of gold.
In the third part of this book, you will discover:
- The Klondike River area of the Yukon was the richest gold find in history to that date.
- The first "strike" was made entirely by accident.
- Hundreds of women joined the rush, most of whom ended up in less than savory occupations.
History of Quebec seeks to untangle the storied history and complexities of Canada's rebel province. It attempts to make sense of how a province of one of the world's most progressive countries continues to ignite conflict between its French- and English-speaking communities.
In the fourth part of this book, you will discover:
- The early indigenous civilizations and their rapid transformations after establishing European contact;
- The rise of the cod and fur trade and the eventual integration of the Americas into European trade networks;
- The elements that contributed to the Grande Noirceur and the consequential Quiet Revolution;
- And much more
