From Sea Unto Sea: Canada--1850 to 1910: the Road to Nationhood

Voorkant
Doubleday, 1960 - 528 pagina's
This history of Canadian enterprise leading to the confederation of Canada East and Canada West, describes the mighty struggles between the two great leaders, John A. Macdonald and George Brown. Discusses the Canadian Pacific Railroad; the opening of the West, in spite of a couple of rebellions led by Louis Riel; and many unpremeditated happenings, such as the wildest gold rush of all time, the Klondike of '96 to '98. The long administration of Sir Wilfrid Laurier is also informally described, with its Liberal party approval of immigration from many lands, its development of hydroelectric resources and its measures which were to make both the manpower and the material resources of Canada of such immense value to Britain--and all of us--in the First World War.
