Description

Imagining Ourselves gathers together selections from Canadian non-fiction books that in some way have had a major impact on how we view ourselves as Canadians, revealing how the national identity has been shaped and informed by the written word. Included are selections from such well-known Canadian books as Wild Animals I Have Known (Ernest Thomas Seton), Pilgrims of the Wild (Grey Owl), Klee Wyck (Emily Carr), The Game (Ken Dryden), Renegade in Power (Peter C. Newman), Survival (Margaret Atwood), and The Last Spike (Pierre Berton).
