ABC of Canada

If you know someone with a sorely incomplete knowledge of Canada, this book may start them on the path to a good Canadian education.  From national pastimes like hockey and the Calgary stampede to icons such as the Mountie and Niagara Falls, this book covers the country from east to west, including the oft forgot prairie provinces.

Like any good ABC book, the best is saved for zed.  And although Per-Henrik Gürth and Kim Bellefontaine picked a good ending, I wish they would’ve chosen this one instead.              →
