"An early nineteenth-century journal of an astonishing voyage from Montreal to the Columbia River via Cape Horn, including descriptions of the court of King Tamehamema of Hawaii and the founding of Fort Astoria." front of dj.

"By 1811 the American fur trade, under the aegis of John Jacob Astor, had burgeoned into a tremendous enterprise. One of Astor's associates was Montreal-born Canadian, Gabriel Franchère.

Franchère kept a diary of one of the most extraordinary voyages ever experienced. Leaving Montreal in 1811, he arrived in New York, where he and a group of other young Americans and Canadian shipped out on the American vessel Tonquin , bound for the Pacific Northwest. The thrilling danger-packed voyage around Cape Horn to the rugged Pacific Coast included a stop-over in Hawaii, where the voyagers were royally entertained at the court of King Tamehamema.

Franchère provides us with colorful descriptions of the founding of Fort Astoria at the mouth of the Columbia River and its subsequent surrender to the British forces during the War of 1812.

The book ends with an account of the overland return to Montreal - a journey as intrepid and dramatic as the sea voyage out." - from dj flaps.

"How can we know where we’re going if we don’t know where we are coming from? This question applies as much to nations as it does to travellers, and it rings especially loudly in the ears of Canadians. Canada: APeople’s History doesn’t tell us where we are going, but it shows us where we have come from This richly illustrated book, the first of two volumes, tells the epic story of Canada from its earliest days to the arrival of theindustrial age in the 1870s. Here is the story of the people who created t his vast nation. The courageous explorers who tracked the vast wilderness; the adventurous settlers, many of them exiles from their homelands; the native peoples, crucial allies in the Europeans’ wars for possession of this land; the visionary politicians, and the shortsighted ones; but most of all the ordinary people who rose to the extraordinary challenge of building Canada. These people are all given voice here, their stories blending with accounts of the major events of the day." (from the Vol. I dj). "In this stunning and comprehensive second volume of the landmark work Canada: A People’sHistory, the story of how Canada came to be the nation we know continues. Volume Two opens with the rebellion over property and language rights by the French-speaking Metis in Manitoba, led by the charismatic and troubled Louis Riel - a seminal event in our history and one that haunts us to this day. It closese with the less bloody but no less traumatic confrontation between the Mohawk and the army at Oka, Quebec, in 1990. Between these two harrowing events lies a hundred years of astonishing change and development in Canada. In those years, Canadians fought in two world wars, struggled through the long, savage Depression years, and peaceably accommodated themselvesto wave after wave of immigrants arriving from Europe, the Caribbean, Sout h America and Southeast Asia. The political changes have been no less striking, with the eruption of nationalism in Quebec, women's stubborn fight forequal rights, and the creation of Canadians' most cherished social service : universal health care."
