Description

Canada is known all over the world due to its undying commitment to multiculturalism and its social and ethnic diversity. In a time when these values were unspoken of, Canada was the first country to embrace an official multiculturalism policy. Nevertheless, the path that Canada followed to become the powerful nation it is today was like a labyrinth, filled with challenges and obstacles.

Starting from Canada's first inhabitants and explorers, this brief book will offer you a comprehensive overview of Canada's history, as it presents the key events that altered the course of this nation irrevocably. The following aspects are included in the book:

  • The coming of the Aboriginal peoples to Canada
  • The first Viking expedition to Canada led by Leif Eriksson
  • The initial European explorations that took place during the 15th-16th centuries and how these laid the grounds for the colonization movement that followed afterward
  • Canada's role and place in the world today
  • The primary elements that shape the Canadian culture and what makes it so distinctive
  • Main places to visit in Canada: some sights and attractions that you shouldn't miss from your itinerary if you want to understand Canada's culture and uniqueness

Only when you aim at learning about a country's history could you fully grasp its culture and evolution. That's what makes this book the perfect resource for those who want to enlarge their knowledge of Canada.

Canada is a country that seems to relish unlimited space. It is dynamic, unique, and complex, being much more than a multicultural society; it is also a multinational one. The details pointed to in this book link Canada's past and present to its potential future. I challenge you to broaden your comprehension of Canada and get this book today! This beautiful country is unexpectedly intriguing once you get to learn more about it.

Really strange audiobook...

This was a really strange one. I'm glad I listened to it, and I learned a few valuable things. But the writing style was really awkward, and the narration was awful. Like a robot. The text felt like it was from a poorly edited 9th-grade social studies textbook.

Wouldn't recommend it unless you can't find anything else.

Not a lot of information for a history text.

I knew It was a short book, yet I didn’t realize that so little of it was devoted to actual history but instead of giving glowing reviews of multiculturalism.

Bad writing, worse reading. I do not recommend.

This book sounds like it was written by a high school sophomore. The reader cuts off he ends of words and sounds like he can't wait to be done reading.

Editing

Not enough pauses at end of topics, and end of words clipped off. Well written and well told. Not well edited.

Incomplete History

"....to Modern Times" is right in the title, yet there is no discussion of Canadian history involving anything west of Ontario! Couple that with the fact that the narrator makes numerous mistakes in pronunciation, and this book is a disaster!

history written by a high school student

Remarkably little detail, vapid generalities, and maddening transitional phrases. Canada deserves better. Both too long and too short.

Good topics, bad narration

I was so eager to read this book and learn a bit about Canadian history, but I honestly could not get past the poor pronunciations for names of Aboriginal groups. It really bothered me to the point that I didn't get past the first few chapters.

I appreciate the context of the book but I feel the narration really ruins it.
