Memorable moments in Canadian history

Canada Our History: An Album Through Time
by Rick Archbold

Key moments of Canadian history are captured in photographs and first-person accounts in this entertaining book. While the child narrators are fictional, Archbold has based them on real people, giving the text a convincing verisimilitude that transports readers into specific times and places.

Fifteen events are covered in the book, among them the Calgary Stampede, Hurricane Hazel, Expo 67, the FLQ crisis, and the standoff at Oka.
