Product description

'YesterCanada' presents thirty historical tales spanning this great land and the centuries from the 1200s to the 1900s. Here are a few of the mysteries you'll find in its pages: Where in the icy Arctic is the lost Vancouver-based ship Baychimo? Who rang the chapel bell in Tadoussac, Quebec one foggy April night in 1782? Why did a Minnesota farmer abandon his farm, walk to Saskatchewan, and build an ocean-going ship far from any ocean? In YesterCanada you'll also meet adventurers like Ontario´s daring Lady Agnes, Nova Scotia's migrating Normanites, gold-seekers of Alberta, and the Manitoba Cree chief who gave his life for the woman he loved. Elma Schemenauer Born near the village of Elbow, Saskatchewan, Elma sank deep roots into the prairie way of life and the traditions of her extended Mennonite family. Venturing farther afield, she became a teacher of English and religion. After several years she fulfilled a lifelong dream by moving into a publishing career in Toronto. She's the author of 75 books including Yesterstories, Native Canadians Today and Long Ago, Jacob Siemens Family Since 1685, Russia, Ottawa, and Hello Winnipeg. In 2006 Elma and her husband relocated to Kamloops, British Columbia. There she writes, blogs, and takes long walks on grassy hillsides that remind her of her prairie roots.
