What exactly is Pre history? Must be history that happened before white folks came along I guess!
Not too impressed by the foreword AT ALL, must have been written by an American.
Overall the book was thankfully brief and the author seemed to have researched the subject well with several interesting facts and a reasonable respect for the subject, the land now known as Canada. It gave a snap shot of the First Nations Civilizations and will hopefully encourage the children of Canada to continue to study and understand the true origins of this land and its people.
I immigrated to Canada many years ago and now plan to read the entire How Canada Became Canada series. My US school years are long past and this will refresh my memory and fill in some blanks. for instance, I didn't know that John Cabot sailed for England but was Italian, Giovanni Caboto, and that it isn't known exactly where on the east coast he landed.
I realize these books are written for school-age children but they will give me an overview that I can pursue later in heavier tomes.
I especially appreciated the outline of the various First Nations now that Truth and Reconciliation are so much in the news.
A good simple book for children to learn about Canadian prehistory.
alot of history!
