The Chronicles of Canada: Volume II - the Rise of New France
George M. Wrong, H. H. Langton
Fireship Press, 2009 - History - 348 pages
The Chronicles of Canada was a Canadian literary landmark. First published in 1914, it was a series of thirty-two, short, concise, freshly-written historical narratives for the lay person. It was designed to set forth, with historical continuity, the principal events and movements in Canada-from the Norse Voyages to the Railway Builders-and it quickly became a classic. Fireship Press is proud to bring this outstanding work-all 32 books combined into a nine volume set-back into print.
