Although Canada's citizens are usually thought of as law-abiding and loyal to authority, there have been some notable and powerful rebels. From fiery spirits such as William Lyon Mackenzie and Louis-Joseph Papineau in 1837, to men and women who simply defied social convention, Canada's rebels have had a strong impact on its growth as a nation.

This book is an overview of native cultures across Canada, beginning with the Beothuk in the East, stretching north to the Inuit and ending with the Haida of the Queen Charlotte Islands in the West. The information covered in the book is quite general but I do like the systematic way in which it is presented. The thing I like most about this book is how each chapter begins with a story. In doing so, the author invites the child to imagine themselves as part of the story while also introducing them to stories that are part of the culture that will be highlighted in each chapter. In addition, there are a number of activity suggestions throughout the book. All in all, a good book for grades 3 - 7.

Only a few black and white drawings and sketches. Maps showing where the Canadian tribes lived and some crafts such as making your own longhouse, and mask. The book tells of the average life of a first nations person was like, some of the different roles in their tribe and the habits of the different tribes. Informative for a teacher or intermediate + student.
