Bourinot’s 1897 book CANADA brought back to me that scholarly, aristocratic attitude I recall in school. In his book, he divides Canadians into cultural classes, holds up French Catholics, Eastern Europeans and Jews for cultural scrutiny, and, somewhat surprisingly, marks Americans (especially those who immigrated to Saskatchewan and other western points) as above other immigrants. In the same manner, he forces the reader to accept Britain and the English as the criteria upon which Canadians are culturally measured

Banal
It is only fitting that sixty years after I left Canada at 18, I should read a scholarly history of that nation. In the summer of 2016 I discovered this book in Edinburgh, Scotland lying open aboard the royal yacht Britannica. Bourinot’s 1897 book CANADA brought back to me that scholarly, aristocratic attitude I recall in school.
In his book, he divides Canadians into cultural classes, holds up French Catholics, Eastern Europeans and Jews for cultural scrutiny, and, somewhat surprisingly, marks Americans (especially those who immigrated to Saskatchewan and other western points) as above other immigrants. In the same manner, he forces the reader to accept Britain and the English as the criteria upon which Canadians are culturally measured. Even today, he surprises the reader, treating Canada’s neighbor to the South in especial terms – the same as a younger sibling would when complimenting an older brother.
Bourinot gives the reader glimpses of Canada at the turn of the 19th and 20thccenturies. He charmed me in his evaluation of Champlain and other early French explorers and presents to the reader his explanations of the political impact on Canada of the American Civil War. Unlike some Canadian historians, Bourinot gives homage to the United Empire Loyalists. He defined Sir John A. McDonald, Howe and others in the mid-19th century who saw Canada’s global future and worked to mark its success.
Sir John George Bourinot’s CANADA is excellent. He gives the reader two histories in his text. The first recounts Canada’s growth from Seventh Century European exploration to its participation in the 1930’s Westminster world. The second is his comparison of present day Canada to the time of his writing. It is my assumption that Her Majesty would agree.

Very racist and biased. But it's the only free history of Canada I could find. The kindle edition does not have the pictures and maps that were probably in the original book. As a US citizen, I was pretty lost when he was talking about geography, especially when he used archaic terms. Details about the initial explorations are very in depth but as he gets later in history, the details are fairly vague. The book is very interesting but please take his conclusions and opinions with a grain of salt.

I bought this on the less-expensive side. This is one were you get what you paid for. Although fairly detailed in coverage, the author seems biased for the English and Canadians. The writing is very dated. This may be a nice reading exercise but did not need that. Lacks feeling and depth.
