Origins: Canadian History to Confederation, 8th Edition

Robert Wardhaugh, Alan MacEachern, R. Douglas Francis, Richard Jones, Donald B. Smith

Origins and its post-Confederation partner Destinies continue their unrivalled ability to tell the story of the history of Canada by balancing different types of history while maintaining a coherent narrative that does not drown the reader in detail. In their new editions, these books have made even greater investment in student engagement, from beautiful production values to a careful integration of social history, with relevant examples that show readers history in the novels and films around them.
