A remarkable cast of past and present young Canadians stride across the pages of "Legends In Their Time," each having a significant role to play in Canadian history. Beginning in the 1500s and moving on into the 20th century, each chapter contributes insights into the evolution of Canada as a nation.

Author George Sherwood's thorough research and his scene setting bring to life the heroic accomplishments and tragic exploits that make Canada's story a fascinating and entertaining account. Included are explorer Etienne Brule- Osborne Anderson, survivor of Harper's Ferry- inventor Armand Bombardier- human rights activist Toy Jin "Jean" Wong- and the heroic Terry Fox, to name but a few of the extraordinary lives that are chronicled. Complementing the text are historic photographs and original artwork by award-winning artist Stewart Sherwood.

"For those who think Canada lacks heroes or Canada does not honour its heroes, "Legends In Their Time" is the book for you. Extensively researched and written in an engaging style, it recognizes that heroes and heroines come in many forms, as shown in the richness of our history. - John Myers, Teacher Educator, OISE/UT
