Canada Ancient time. The People and History. Former American president John Adams once declared, "Canada must be ours; Québec must be taken," during the 1776 Continental Congress. However, the United States never did take Québec or the rest of Canada, which instead grew into an amazing independent nation with its own distinct cultural identity. Although Canada may appear at first glance to be merely a colder, friendlier offshoot of its American neighbor, its locals will quickly point out all the things which make their country unique. Many people immediately think of the beaches along Atlantic Canada's coast, the magnificent Rocky Mountains, or miles of isolated forests where caribou roam when conjuring up visions of Canada's landscape. However, Canada also includes some of the world's most sophisticated cities, from multicultural Toronto to scenic Vancouver. Québec City contains nearly as many centuries-old buildings as several European staples, with Montréal being the planet's most populous predominantly French speaking city outside of Paris. Most of Canada's tourists arrives in the summer months simply for warmer temperatures and greater variety of activities, but those who brave Canada's cold winters will be rewarded with some of the world's finest skiing in the Rocky Mountains, which form much of the boundary between Alberta and British Columbia. Winter is also the season for some of Canada's most famous festivals, such as the world's biggest winter carnival in Québec City and the Winterlude celebration in Ottawa, Canada's national capital. Accommodations in Canada vary drastically in terms of location, availability, and affordability. Historic landmark hotels are just as plentiful as luxury hotel chains in most Canadian cities, also offer plenty of budget options in the forms of university residences and bed and breakfasts. Cottage rentals, campgrounds, and fully-equipped log cabins are all popular places to stay in rural Canadian regions. Poutine, tourtière,

The British Isles, Scandinavia, Iceland, Greenland, and Eastern Canada, alongside many small islands, form a broken bridge across the northern extremities of the Atlantic Ocean. This 'North Atlantic World' is a heterogeneous but culturally intertwined area, ideally suited to the fostering of an interest in all things northern by its people. For the storytellers and writers of the past, each more northerly land was far enough away that it could seem fabulous and even otherworldly, while still being just close enough for myths and travellers' tales to accrue. This book charts attitudes to the North in the North Atlantic World from the time of the earliest extant sources until the present day. The varied papers within consider a number of key questions which have arisen repeatedly over the centuries: 'where is the North located?', 'what are its characteristics?', and 'who, or what lives there?'. They do so from many angles, considering numerous locations and an immense span of time. All are united by their engagement with the North Atlantic World's relationship with the North.

The Lost Kingdom of Anian Regnum: The Mystery of Ancient British Columbia, Canada An Alternative History Article on the History of British Columbia, Canada There is a mystery about British Columbia, Canada- a historical mystery that is just as significant as any other historical mystery in our past. No one remembers the story of Ancient British Columbia, and we are not taught about it in school. Not so long ago, ‘Anian Regnum’ was inscribed on all the oldest maps, searched for by the Explorers of Old, believed by those who came after, and spoken of in written history by respected Historians. This unknown place of Anian Regnum was shown to be established within the mountains of British Columbia before it was British Columbia- but it is now forgotten in time and disregarded as myth. Could it be possible that ‘Anian Regnum’ did exists, and might we begin to assemble the fragmented annals of our written history to find the Lost Kingdom.

Margaret Conrad's history of Canada begins with a challenge to its readers. What is Canada? What makes up this diverse, complex and often contested nation-state? What was its founding moment? And who are its people? Drawing on her many years of experience as a scholar, writer and teacher of Canadian history, Conrad offers astute answers to these difficult questions. Beginning in Canada's deep past with the arrival of its Aboriginal peoples, she traces its history through the conquest by Europeans, the American Revolutionary War and the industrialization of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to its prosperous present. Despite its successes and its popularity as a destination for immigrants from across the world, Canada remains a curiously reluctant player on the international stage. This intelligent, concise and lucid book explains just why that is.
