Will Ferguson visits spots across Canada, many of which are lesser known, to explore culture and history. My favorite was the chapter/essay near the end with the renditions of the Viking settlement reenactors with Newfoundland accents. It was also interesting to revisit the Hudson Bay Company and its competitors within Canada (any Oregonian child learns a lot about HBC in 4th grade.) The polar bear chapter probably does the best job at putting the reader there (many crossover places with Annie Muktuk in that one.)

Some essays were fascinating, some had moments of humor; others I felt struggled to find their "why." I liked how the essays started with BC and moves eastward.
