Rate this:
From the discovery of dinosaur bones in Alberta to Jacques Plante's invention of the hockey mask and Marshall McLuhan's radical analysis of the media and the modern world, JUST A MINUTE free-wheels through some of the most interesting and human stories of a nation that was named “Kanata” after the Iroquois word for “village.”Did you know that the McIntosh apple came from one accidental tree? Laura Secord never had a cow. Baseball was being played in Canada a full year before American Abner Doubleday claims to have invented the game. Governor Frontenac came to Quebec City to avoid his French creditors. And did you know that “truth, justice and the American way” was a Canadian invention?This is a highly readable, historically correct, and wildly entertaining volume that will leave readers constantly saying to themselves, “I didn't know that.”
