---------large (oblong quarto) hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine lightly rubbed dustjacket, signed by Berton on a tipped-in plate which seems to be common to this book, 223 pages, packed with colour and b&w photos, ---"Nations are built from the relationship between a country's unique physical features and the people who live in and around them. Canada is a most spectacular example of such a glorious marriage. In this sweeping look at the country he knows so well, Pierre Berton has compiled the stories of twenty-five people who have shaped our history or been shaped and influenced by the geography they found themselves contending with. He sees genius and madness in characters from all parts of the country: from Maquinna, the emperor of the rainforest who battled fellow chieftains and European invaders alike, to Robert Service, who loathed the poem that made him rich, to Mina Hubbard, the widow who raced across Labrador in long skirts to carry out her late husband's dream. Pierre Berton's Canada visits every region, adding daubs of color to our vast map. And the stunning photos that fill the book complement the stories, and explain the hardships and joys that motivated Berton's cast of characters."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
