The original Dangerous Book for Boys is an international sensation. The brainchild of brothers Conn Iggulden (bestselling author of the Emperor and Conqueror series) and Hal Iggulden, it brought the wonders of old-fashioned knowledge and play to life for the video game generation. Since then, boys around the world—and their fathers and grandfathers—have discovered this marvellous book, and international sales of The Dangerous Book for Boys and its tie-in editions have topped two million copies.

Now, Canadians have an edition that reflects the traditions, geography and games of our country. It includes stories of famous battles, such as the Battle of Vimy Ridge, and features legendary Canadians such as Francis Pegahmagabow, the heroic Ojibway sniper who fought bravely in World War I. It tells the tale of coureurs de bois, the lost Franklin Expedition and escaped slave Josiah Henson. Favourite sections such as Astronomy, Fishing, Trees, Insects and Books Every Boy Should Read are filled with new Canadian information. And, of course, there’s loads of hockey lore!
