Excerpt from The Pageant of Canadian History

The unconventional pattern of this book requires some ex planation for readers who expect to find the historical narrative proceeding chronologically from year to year. I have seen the vigorous history of Canada in big sweeps of movement; the dramatic period of French exploration and the life of New France; the pursuit of fur which carried explorers and traders all the way to the Pacific; the growth of a few small British colonies into the Dominion of Canada; tllen the winning of the west and the advance to modern nationhood. This method in volves some shuf ing back and forth in time, but it makes clear the motive power of ideas and ambitions that urged the people on from one period to another of their history. The book is as the title indicates, a pageant, a story of the land and people, rather than a historian's study. It has been written for my fel low Americans, to pass on my discovery of the vivid history of our northern neighbors and my admiration for them. The book is also offered to Canadians in the hope that they will accept this interpretation of their story by an enthusiastic friend across the border. I wish to express my appreciation to many Canadi ans of town and country who welcomed me with so much friendliness; to librarians, and to officers of 'a variety of institu tions who courteously gave their time and interest to help me with information.
