Every Canadian knows a handful of dates that changed our country—July 1, 1867; November 11, 1918; September 28, 1972—but our nation’s history, now more than 50,000 days long, runs much deeper than those iconic moments. From politics and wars to natural disasters, inventions and sports, this highly readable and beautifully designed album offers an engaging and insightful portrait of life in all parts of Canada. Featuring a stunning array of colour and black-and-white photographs, 100 Days That Changed Canada is an elegant keepsake and an essential addition to every library.

Contributors include Michael Bliss, Stevie Cameron, Adrienne Clarkson, Tim Cook, Charlotte Gray, Ken McGoogan, Dick Pound, Bob Rae, Peter Mansbridge, Rona Maynard, Peter C. Newman, Margaret Wente and Brian Williams.
