Insight Guide Canada is a comprehensive, inspirational guide to getting the most out of one the world's largest and most beautiful countries. Engaging and lively History and Culture chapters explain the country's tumultuous past caught between European powers and the USA, and the factors influencing its 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 vast expanses of wild landscape are fully explored so that visitors can gain a sense of how Canada's character and culture have been shaped. To help with planning a 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. Full-color photographs throughout illustrate the beauty of the Canadian landscape more than any other guide to the country on the market and give a true flavor of Canadian life today. Detailed maps throughout the book help visitors get around the different areas, with all major sites cross-referenced with the text, and the Travel Tips offer practical advice and selective, independent reviews of the best and most authentic places to stay and eat.
