PROFILE OF THE MONTH

CANADA'S STORY, BOOKS ONE AND TWO

CANADA'S STORY, BOOKS ONE AND TWO tell the story of Canada from the Dawn of Time to the destruction of the Hurons in 1649. For all you history buffs out there, and especially during Canada's 150th birthday year, these books are a must read. CANADA'S STORY, THE DAWN OF TIME (Book One) and THE STRUGGLE FOR A CONTINENT (Book Two) In BOOK ONE, THE DAWN OF TIME, Author, Robert J Foley, has captured the history of Canada from the dawn of time to the destruction of the Hurons in 1649. It is intended to show the contribution of all the people who have settled this land from the First Nations to the French explorers who risked everything that we might have a country today that we proudly call Canada. In BOOK TWO, THE STRUGGLE FOR A CONTINENT, with the destruction of the Hurons the balance of power shifted dramatically. The Iroquois ranged freely over the St Lawrence Valley shutting off, for a time, the life's blood of Canada, the Fur Trade. This era in Canadian history also saw the beginnings of the great struggle for control of the North American continent. France claimed everything west of the Allegheny Mountains and it was Canadians who enforced their sovereignty over the vast territory from Quebec to New Orleans. We meet the man who, more than anyone since Champlain, helped shape this country, Louis de Buade, Comte de Frontenac
