Insight Guide Canada is a comprehensive, full-colour guide to getting the most out of one of the world's most beautiful countries. Engaging History and Culture chapters explain the tumultuous history of Canada, and the factors influencing Canadian culture and identity; from ancient Inuit settlements, through to the arrival of the British, to the influx of immigrants from all over the world. The burgeoning arts scene, local cuisine and the wild landscape, all contributors to the country's unique character, are fully explored. To help with planning your trip, the Places chapters encompass all of Canada's provinces, cover the vibrant cities of Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal in detail, and suggest where to visit and what to do in Canada's great outdoors, including taking the train across the majestic Rocky Mountains. Full-colour photographs throughout illustrate the beauty of the Canadian landscape and give a true flavour of life in the country today. Detailed maps plot all major sights, and the Travel Tips offer practical advice plus selective, independent reviews of the best and most authentic places to stay and eat.
