224 pp, 9 3/4" H. B&w and colour illustrations. "Through the fur trade, Scots formed the backbone of North America's first continent-wide industry more than two hundred years ago. They then used their power to create the first banks, railways, shipping lines, universities, and media. They also branched into and dominated politics, the military and literature. This book demonstrates the astounding extent to which Canada's fundamental institutions and culture are a product of early, tough-minded Scottish immigrants." Bump at top corner of boards, tiny bump at bottom corner of boards and front hinge, slight fading at bottom edge of front board and spine. Dust jacket has very light rubbing, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.
