From the epic journeys into the unknown by the first people who crossed the Berring land bridge thousands of years ago to Roberta Bondar?s landmark voyage into space, The Story of Canada is as vast in scope as the country itself.

Alan Daniel?s evocative original paintings, as well as several hundred historical photographs, maps, paintings, posters, and cartoons, make
The Story of Canada as splendid to look at as it is fascinating to read.
