This anthology celebrates and explores the particular qualities of the writing of a nation. The stories evoke what is distinctive about Canadians and their relationship to their country; their attitude towards its vastness; their valuing of individuality; historical and current problems of identity; attitudes towards the nation's cultural mix; the country's increasing urbanisation; growing interest in women's rights; and attitudes towards the country's future. The stories will appeal across the ability range of 14-17 year old students, in class and with teacher support. They will produce an interesting and enlivening resource for enquiry and responsive discussion, and are particularly suitable for developing a multi-cultural perspective.
