The seigneurial system in early Canada; a geographical study by Cole Harris( Book )

With its long thin fields and straggling rows of farmhouses stretching along either bank of the St Lawrence river for two hundred miles and more, the landscape of rural Canada toward the end of the French regime presented a distinctive charm and drew later writers to construct idyllic portraits of the social and legal system which, they believed, had shaped it

The resettlement of British Columbia : essays on colonialism and geographical change by Cole Harris( )

19 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this beautifully crafted collection of essays, Cole Harris reflect on the strategies of colonialism in British Columbia during the first 150 years after the arrival of European settlers. The pervasive displacement of indigenous people by the newcomers, the mechanisms by which it was accomplished, and the resulting effects on the landscape social life, and history of Canada's western-most province are examined through the dual lenses of post-colonial theory and empirical data. By providing a compelling look at the colonial construction of the province, the book revises existing perceptions of the history and geography of British Columbia
Historical atlas of Canada by Cole Harris( )

20 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A uniquely beautiful record of Canada's early development, this volume of the Historical Atlas of Canada explores the relationship between what is now Canada and its people, from the earliest evidence of human habitation to the beginning of the nineteenth century.The early traces date back some 12000 years. From this starting point at the end of the late Wisconsinan glacial maximum, the atlas provides an unprecedented outline of Canadian prehistory and the early historic period. The first 18 remarkable maps describe the settlements, cultural development, agriculture, and economic systems of the Indian and Inuit peoples of Canada and their predecessors.The volume goes on to illuminate the social and economic impact of European exploitation, trade, and settlements, looking in detail at relations between Europeans and native peoples. Richly detailed plates describe the movements of the new arrivals, the fisheries around Newfoundland and in the Gulf of St Lawrence, the French colonization in Acadia and the St Lawrence valley, the development of agriculture, the growth of towns, the expansion of the fur trade, and its impact on the various native nations and on the West generally.Unlike most historical atlases, which focus on geopolitical events and their territorial consequences, this volume of the Historical Atlas of Canada and its two companion volumes emphasize the circumstances of ordinary life. Much attention is paid to the small agricultural settlements and early towns in which Canadians lived during this period. Large-scale maps show individual settlements; small-scale maps explain how the patterns of distribution and trade shaped the growth of these settlements and, in turn, of Canada.An extraordinarily rich picture of our past emerges from the combination of text and graphic material in this volume, an illustration of Canada's early development that no other document has ever offered. With the other two volumes of the atlas, it pr

Historical atlas of Canada by D. G. G Kerr( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1891, the young nation of Canada stood on the brink of a great surge of growth and development. During the seven decades covered in this volume Canada would be transformed from a rural, agricultural society, almost exclusively British and French in background, to an urban, industrial nation with more cultural diversity. These developments are illustrated in the exceptionally vivid plates of this book
Letters From Windermere, 1912-1914 by Cole Harris( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Letters from Windermere, 1912-1914 by Daisy Phillips( Book )

13 editions published between 1984 and 2009 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written primarily by Daisy Phillips, with a few by her husband Jack, to her family in England, these letters describe the creation of a shortlived English home in the Windermere Valley of southwestern British Columbia. Not given to introspection, Daisy registers her immediate and frank reactions to her new environment and startling new way of life. From her letters we learn of the experiences of the Phillips and their neighbours in settling the newly opened land and of their attempts to grow fruit in an area with limited agricultural potential. The contrast between middle-class British mores and those of Canadian pioneer society -- largely classless and multi-ethnic in character -- was to Daisy a challenge to be overcome. Requests to England brought in return a flood of British consumer goods which helped her to duplicate in her dress and household furnishings the more cultivated surroundings and manners of home. While such affectations seemed incongruous in a frontier setting, Daisy learned to work to maintain them and mastered tasks unknown in England to one of her station. Between her first request for a pamphlet on laundering handkerchiefs and her departure less than three years later, she learned to cook on a wood stove, sew, clean house, and wash clothes without running water or servants. There is also evidence that prior to their abrupt return to England at the outbreak of war, the cultural barriers were breaking down as the Phillips became more involved in sharing the experience of being pioneer Canadians. Jack's early death on the battlefield gives Daisy's letters an added poignancy. Not only do they constitute a valuable historical document but they also convey with simple directness the story of a happy marriage, of the intersection of an English dream with the Windermere Valley, and something of the story of all immigrants to any new settlement in Western Canada
