Description

Integrating social, cultural, political, and economic history within a coherent overarching narrative, the first volume of J.M. Bumsted's two-volume history examines the evolution of Canada from contact with the earliest European settlers until 1885. Some of the highlights include pre-contactNorth American exploration in the 16th and 17th centuries; settlement in the Atlantic provinces; the St. Lawrence Valley, and New France; the growth of political changes that brought about confederation of the four provinces of British North America into the Dominion of Canada; and the expansion ofCanada's domain, society, and economy in the 19th century. This expanded second edition includes an outstanding new companion CD-ROM that contains maps and photographs, biographies, tips on writing and research, and further material on Aboriginal history. The Peoples of Canada: A Pre-ConfederationHistory is ideal for a single-semester course in Pre-Confederation Canadian history, or the first half of a full-year survey course in Canadian History.
