"Most Canadians recall iconic dates in the history of the country - July 18 1867, when Canada came together at Confederation; November 11 1918, when the guns of the World War I fell silent; or September 28 1972, when Paul Henderson scored perhaps the most important goal in hockey history. But our history is now more than 50,000 days long and runs deeper than those iconic moment. In this volume put together by the Canadian Historical Society, 100 days have been chosen to reflect the myriad influences on the path of Canadian history. There are contributions from many prominent figures including: Peter Mansbridge, Adrienne Clarkson, Lawrence Hill, Don Newman, Charlotte Gray and Margaret Wente, among many others."

WOW. READ THIS BOOK...you will not be disappointed. Reading this book will give you an overview of many of the events that changed Canada. The authors are a who's who of great and interesting authors in a wide field that includes Adrienne Clarkson, Ken Dryden, Charlotte Gray, Peter Mansbridge, Peter C Newman. My favorite section is 1867-1929 with topics such as Confederation, the purchase of Rupert's Land, Treaty #7, the senseless bison slaughter, Louis Riel as madman or messiah. The excellent choice of pics makes the stories come alive.
If you were to explore further into an author or a specific event, then this book would be well worth reading.

This was compiled by Mark Reid - from the online journal Canada's History. It has significant contributors and is absolutely superb reading for information and enjoyment. The photos add to the short pieces.

Really good book. Somewhat inconsistent because there's various writers contributing.
