This book was a slow, dry read. My purpose for reading it was to get a better grasp of how Canada went from a European colony to the nation as it is today. I suppose it did that in a round about way but I found myself skipping around a lot, something I rarely do with books.

A good survey and overview of Canada. Useful for reference as well.
