Historical Atlas of Canada

book cover image: historical atlas of canada

There are maps in the Historical atlas of Canada : Canada's history illustrated with original maps that have been gathered from major archives and libraries all over the world including the National Archives of Canada. Derek Hayes has done a magnificient job of researching and finding both previously published and never published maps from archives (including the Hudson Bay archives) to maps drawn by native people such as the Beothuk, Blackfoot and Cree.  He unfolds Canada's colourful past in great visual detail to present it like you have never seen it before.  This is a mesmerizing piece of work.
