Thomas B. Costain's exhaustive research on the development of what is now Canada starts with the Vikings' first explorations of the North American continent and concentrates on the establishment of Quebec by the French, their conquest over the Native Americans, and the development of the province's major cities. While the historical scope of the book is exhaustive, its style is accessible and conversational, and Richard Matthews presents it as such. Matthews and Costain together explore the lives of individuals who populate Canada's past, from missionary priests and natives to explorers to world leaders. Each comes alive under their expert treatment. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
