Well-Written Canadian History Spine

Reviewed by Parent/Teacher

I have not actually used this book yet (planning to begin this year with my eldest child), but it is very well written. It has some obvious biases common in older books (history begins with Christopher Columbus, native Canadians are mentioned only in relation to white explorers and sometimes are referred to in ways we would find offensive today, treatment of Acadian explusion has a bit of a British bias). However, all history books have bias and the fact that these biases are so obvious may actually be an advantage (we might not see the bias as well in a more recent book). Aside from that, this book is written in a living way, full of detail which captures the imagination. I highly recommend it.
