The Peoples of Canada

A Pre-Confederation History

Third Edition

J. Bumsted

Ranging from first peoples (before contact with the earliest European settlers) up to Confederation in 1867, The Peoples of Canada: A Pre-Confederation History, Third Edition, provides an in-depth examination of Canada's history. The volume looks at pre-contact northern North America exploration in the 16th and 17th centuries; settlement in the Atlantic provinces, the St. Lawrence Valley, and New France; the growth of the political changes that brought about the confederation of the four provinces of British North America into the Dominion of Canada; and the expansion of Canada's domain, society, and economy in the 19th century. This third edition features revised and updated pedagogical aids and supplementary materials.
