This should not be labelled ""juvenile"" in any sense of the word. The only hint of its particular market lies in its objectivity, its avoidance of controversial questions, economic, political. And that -- as a background book on Canada - is no objection for the adult reader who wants an excellent history of the country and the people. I've read several histories of Canada: for clarity, balance of story interest, human interest, and a sense of the molding of a country, this is tops. There is adequate information on activities, though I felt a lack in the industrial side -- a distinctive war development of which too little is known this side the border. The book is an excellent addition to a good series.
