The Peoples of Canada: A Pre-Confederation History, Third Edition, examines the history of Canada from the first peoples before contact with the earliest European settlers, to Confederation in 1867. The volume examines pre-contact northern North America exploration in the 16th and 17th centuries; settlement in the Atlantic provinces, the St. Lawrence Valley, and New France; the growth of the political changes that brought about the confederation of the four provinces of British North America into the Dominion of Canada; and the expansion of Canada's domain, society, and economy in the 19th century.
