Summary

Published 15 years after his Governor General's award-winningThe Unknown Country, Bruce Hutchison'sCanada: Tomorrow's Giantis a vivid portrait of the nation on the verge of the 1960s. Finding Canada changed "outwardly in many places beyond recognition and inwardly everywhere," Hutchison invites readers to join him in a "casual, disordered tour across the nation and some of its wilderness" to discover the new Canada. The result is a portrait of a country in the making that still resonates today. Canada: Tomorrow's Giant, like its predecessorThe Unknown Country, was awarded the Governor General's Award for creative nonfiction. The Wynford edition includes a new introduction by Vaughn Palmer, one of Canada's foremost political journalists and a winner of the Bruce Hutchison Award. Palmer's introduction puts both the book and Hutchison's career in historical context for modern readers.
