The thousand-year path : the Canada Hall at the Canadian Museum of Civilization by Robert McGhee( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The path of European history in Canada begins ten centuries ago with the first ventures of Norsemen to the northeastern coasts. It winds westward across the continent and through time, following the rise of the cod fishery, the fur trade, the early farms of Acadia and those of the Loyalists who retreated to Canada after the American Revolution. In decades, the Prairies were transformed from buffalo country to wheat farms, and British Columbia from a fur trading colony to a complex society of many peoples. The scenes of the past glimpsed along this historical trail allow travellers to build their own sense of the country s history, and of the immense labour undertaken by our ancestors."--Jacket

The Great Peace : chronicle of a diplomatic saga by Alain Beaulieu( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Montreal, summer 1701. There was excitement in the air, as ambassadors from nearly forty Indian nations assembled in the town, the heart of New France. Summoned by Governor Louis-Hector de Calliere, France's allies, including the Algonquins, Ottawas and Hurons, were gathering alongside representatives of the Iroquois. The goal of this daring initiative: to convince them all to sign the Great Peace treaty." "This book recounts the story of this exceptional event in words and images. Of course, it introduces readers to the French and Native players involved in the negotiations and examines the geopolitical and trade issues addressed by the treaty. But most of all, it paints a picture of a legendary time in North America, when the most disparate cultures had to find a way to co-exist." "This voyage to New France is divided into eleven chapters, in which the authors' absorbing commentary is brought to life through abundant illustrations of all kinds. Historian Alain Beaulieu and anthropologist Roland Viau were inspired by the writings of an eyewitness to these events, Bacqueville de La Potherie, Comptroller of the Marine and Fortifications in Canada, to guide us through the twists and turns of an extraordinary summer. The adventure begins on July 20, 1701 ..."--Jacket
