This is a good basic introduction to Canadian history that even young teens would find easy to read. I was annoyed at the number of random names and quotations that were dropped into the book without preamble or further discussion. If you're looking for an introduction though, and don't care too much about the minor details, this two part series is a good start.

Canada: A People's History Vol 2May 2 2014
- Published on Amazon.com
Since Volume 2 arrived before Volume 1, I read through this book quickly. Although I knew that the French Canadians were subjected to a great deal of degrading by the English over the years, this book reinforced what I thought I knew. I found the book to be very enlightening.
