Canada's Native people have inhabited this land since the Ice Age and were already accomplished traders, artisans, farmers and marine hunters when Europeans first reached their shores. Contact between Natives and European explorers and settlers initially presented an unprecedented period of growth and opportunity. But the two vastly different cultures soon clashed. Arthur J. Ray charts the history of Canada's Native people from first contact to current land claims. The result is a fascinating chronicle that spans 12,000 years and culminates in the headlines of today.

In this fifth volume in Oxford's Illustrated History of Canada series, Patricia Roy and John Thompson present a compact narrative survey of British Columbia's economic, political, and social history, generously illustrated with roughly 150 paintings, drawings, and maps that shed their own light on the province's history. British Columbia, as we know it geographically and politically today, did not exist until 1858. The boundaries of the present-day province were defined in a piecemeal and haphazard manner, and are still disputed by the First Nations, who have never accepted the 1927 agreement between the federal and the provincial governments that defined the extent of their territories within the province. Historians can never entirely escape superimposing the tidy political map of contemporary British Columbia over an untidy geography, and an equally untidy history. Human conflict and human diversity mark British Columbia's past. Based on current scholarship, this volume provides a detailed account of the multitude of experiences within British Columbia. British Columbia: Land of Promises continues the tradition of sound scholarship and easy readability of the previous volumes in Oxford's Illustrated History of Canada series. Previous volumes were praised for being "richly illustrated, readable, detailed and opinionated" (London Free Press), and "attractive as individual volumes to those who want an introduction to a particular region, and as part of aseries to those who are looking for a new, general history of Canada."(Quill and Quire)

A visually spectacular saga of the events, people and experiences that shaped a nation and the Canadian psyche. From the early days of exploration and settlement through the building of a nation to Canada's contribution to the two world wars, this illustrated history of Canada conveys the drama and scope of the nation's past. Through accessible commentary and a wealth of images, readers discover well-known and lesser-known facets of Canadian history, including the story of Canada's first newspaper, the Halifax Gazette; the many railways (besides the Canadian Pacific) that connected people and places; the Canadian bridge that collapsed not once, but twice; and horrific disasters like the Halifax Explosion. Hayes also illuminates the people-the famous, the infamous, and the less well known-from fur traders to politicians, air aces to refugee slaves. From famous images of the country to unknown views of everyday life, here is a visual experience every Canadian can enjoy. More than 440 illustrations accompany the text, including 200 photographs, 50-plus paintings and drawings (many by Canadian artists) and 35 historic maps, as well as posters, stamps, cartoons, stained glass and tapestries.

Hockey may be Canada`s game, but curling is Canada`s life. Brought over from Scotland with the 78th Fraser Highlanders, the sport of curling has alleviated many seemingly endless winters, from 1759 to present day. Today, over one million people in Canada are curlers, and Canada boasts more curling world championships and trophies than any other country in the world. With archival and modern photographs as well as informative text, Doug Maxwell recounts the definitive history of curling in Canada. From the highly technical games of Olympians Kelly Law and Ed Martin, back to the first organised curling club in Canada (the Montreal Curling Club founded in 1807) , Maxwell provides a thorough grounding on the “ other” ice sport that has come to define Canada.
