Canada: A People's History is a series of supplemental resources linked to the popular CBC/Radio Canada series. The addition of this collection is designed to augment the core study text of the Social Studies classroom.
In First Contact, we learn how over time, first fish, then furs, would bring the Europeans here to stay, and how those early encounters set the stage for a collision course between two very different sets of values - a clash that would change the lives of aboriginal peoples forever.
Richly illustrated with maps, historical graphics, documents, paintings and portraits, First Contact examines the Aboriginal lifestyle before these first encounters, with special attention given to the traditions, customs, values, governments and spiritual beliefs.
The book explores the quest for riches that brought the early explorers - Cristopher Columbus, John Cabot, Jacques Cartier and Samuel de Champlain - to Canada, the settlers who followed in search of a new life in the new land, and the arrival of missionaries intent on spreading Christianity around the world.
First Contact also explores the conflicts between the European nations as the quest for furs produced bitter rivalries and alliances.
