How does the nature of Canada define us? These are contemplative meditations on who we are as Canadians. Each short essay is by a star in Canadian history or environmental studies. They are highly readable and deeply interesting. They enlighten, inform, and engage, presenting history in new ways. This is a book for nature fans, Canadian history readers, and those who ponder who we are as Canadians. Beautifully packaged and illustrated, it is the perfect gift book for a thoughtful friend or relative. We will be pitching NA media, with a focus on national: Literary Review of Canada, Canadian Geographic Magazine, Quill and Quire, Globe and Mail, National Post, New York Review of Books, Times Literary Supplement, New York Times Canada section, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, Choice and literary publications such as The Goose, Canadian Literature, The Walrus. Excerpts will be offered where appropriate. There will be a Vancouver launch, with Toronto plans in the works.
