A wild ride through Canadian history, fully revised and updated!

This new edition of Canadian History For Dummies takes readers on a thrilling ride through Canadian history, from indigenous native cultures and early French and British settlements through Paul Martin's shaky minority government. This timely update features all the latest, up-to-the-minute findings in historical and archeological research. In his trademark irreverent style, Will Ferguson celebrates Canada's double-gold in hockey at the 2002 Olympics, investigates Jean Chrétien's decision not to participate in the war in Iraq, and dissects the recent sponsorship scandal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scholarly, Entertaining, Lively and Exciting! What an achievement this is! Who said our history was boring? Will Ferguson's book is well researched and well referenced ( and could quite easily be used in a history undergraduate course). But it is also highly entertaining and readable. Our history as told faithfully and beautifully in this book could be the stuff of several blockbuster films! It is only the uncommon achievement of an uncommon story teller that combines historical accuracy, readability and a lively, vigorous and lucid style. Will Ferguson is all that and more! He brings a gentle humor, a genuine love for Canada into this book - and that quintissential Canadian character of being able to laugh at oneself.
