Science, medicine, sports, inspiring feats or remarkable structures — Canadians do it like no one else! We've made scientific discoveries like the oil-spill-gobbling Slicklicker and the space-bracing Canadarm; cool creations like Superman and Trivial Pursuit; and breakthrough technologies like IMAX and Java. Diverse heroes like Dr. Norman Bethune, Terry Fox and Marilyn Bell are also celebrated in this book. Add a dash of our habit of making huge things — from buildings to statues of food — and sprinkle liberally with cartoons and photos, and you have a recipe for the perfect book to amuse and inspire and learn from.
