Published 15 years after his Governor General's award-winningThe Unknown Country, Bruce Hutchison'sCanada: Tomorrow's Giantis a vivid portrait of the nation on the verge of the 1960s. Finding Canada changed "outwardly in many places beyond recognition and inwardly everywhere," Hutchison invites readers to join him in a "casual, disordered tour across the nation and some of its wilderness" to discover the new Canada. The result is a portrait of a country in the making that still resonates today. Canada: Tomorrow's Giant, like its predecessorThe Unknown Country, was awarded the Governor General's Award for creative nonfiction. The Wynford edition includes a new introduction by Vaughn Palmer, one of Canada's foremost political journalists and a winner of the Bruce Hutchison Award. Palmer's introduction puts both the book and Hutchison's career in historical context for modern readers.

Author Biography

Bruce Hutchison (1901-92) was one of Canada's foremost journalists. His career spanned most of the 20th century and he was the recipient of many honours, including three Governor General's Awards. In nearly 75 years of political reporting, Hutchison developed friendships with political personalities ranging from Louis St Laurent to Pierre Elliott Trudeau. His writings on Canada and its political figures were characterized by the confidential vignette, but he was criticized for partisan loyalty to the Liberal party-a charge he denied. His best-known book, The unknown country: Canada and her people (1943) is a delightful panorama of Canada. Hutchison also dealt successfully with the larger movements of politics and economics. His novel The hollow men (1944), the story of a newspaper correspondent disillusioned by world war, combines subtle political satire with sympathy for wilderness life.
