The long-awaited follow up to Annabel and Kathleen Winter's first work of narrative nonfiction. In 2010, bestselling author Kathleen Winter took a journey across the storied Northwest Passage, among marine scientists, historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, and curious passengers. From Greenland to Baffin Island and all along the passage, Winter bears witness to the new math of the melting North - where polar bears mate with grizzlies, creating a new hybrid species; where the earth is on the cusp of yielding so much buried treasure that five nations stand poised to claim sovereignty of the land; and where the local Inuit population struggles to navigate the tension between taking part in the new global economy and defending their traditional way of life. Throughout the journey she also learns from fellow passengers Aaju Peter and Bernadette Dean, who teach her about Inuit society, past and present. She bonds with Nathan Rogers, son of the late Canadian icon Stan Rogers, who died in a plane crash when Nathan was nearly four years old. Nathan's quest is to take the route his father never travelled, except in his beloved song "The Northwest Passage," which he performs both as anthem and lament at sea. And she guides us through her own personal odyssey, emigrating from England to Canada as a child and discovering both what was lost and what was gained as a result of that journey. In breathtaking prose charged with vivid descriptions of the land and its people, Kathleen Winter's Boundless is a haunting and powerful story, and a homage to the ever-evolving and magnetic power of the North.

The summer of 1812 saw the beginning of one of the most brutal wars to take place on Canadian soil. With more than 1,600 people killed and a battlefront that extended from Halifax Harbour in Nova Scotia to the Columbia River in what is now British Columbia, the war featured many brave men and women who fended off much larger American forces. Canada on Fire is an exciting account of the War of 1812 as told through the stories of the heroes who helped to defend Canada, people such as Mohawk chief John Norton, who led a small army into battle against the wishes of his tribe, and Red George Macdonnell, who spent the war defending the St. Lawrence River. With descriptions of the battle at Lundy's Lane, the adventures of the Sea Wolves, and the antics of James Fitzgibbon and his Bloody Boys, Canada on Fire reveals the War of 1812 as it has seldom been seen.

Find out about the riches of Canada's natural resources! Canada is a big country, rich in natural resources. All of its diverse environments - from oceans, rivers and lakes, to forests, mountains, fertile soils and grasslands - supply raw materials that can be useful in all sorts of ways. Some natural resources, like crops or fish, can be used just as they are. Others are transformed to produce energy or materials for products we use every day, from cars to phones to computers, clothes, books, and everything in between. Find out what Canada has to offer, and why it's so important that we value our natural resources and use them responsibly. This new addition to the Canada Close Up non-fiction series has full-colour photos throughout and provides a table of contents, an index and glossary of important terms.
