Thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate new scholarship and fresh approaches, The Peoples of Canada: A Pre-Confederation History, fourth edition, traces the patterns of early immigration over the Bering Strait and across the Atlantic, while highlighting landmark political, economic, cultural, and social developments in the years before 1867. The first part of a two-volume set, the text now extends its coverage past Confederation to the milestone year of 1885, when the completion of the CPR united the nation, and the hanging of Louis Riel deepened the divisions between its French, English, and Aboriginal peoples.
Bringing all the hallmarks of previous editions together with significant new material and indispensable pedagogical tools, The Peoples of Canada, fourth edition, is the definitive introduction to pre-Confederation Canadian history.
For over 25 years, John M. Bumsted taught history at the University of Manitoba. He is now enjoying retirement.
