“O Canada” was first heard in 1880, but it was not until 100 years later that it became Canada's official national anthem. In this, the first illustrated edition of “O Canada,” acclaimed Canadian painter Ted Harrison takes us on a spectacular journey across Canada, “from east to western sea.” Through his joyous eye, Canada is revealed as a land of singular beauty.
