Summary
In its day, The Colour of Canada, with text by Hugh MacLennan, sold over a million-and-a-half copies to Canadians and non-Canadians alike, making it one of the most beloved books of its kind ever published in this country. Sadly, it went out of print for M & S many years ago after an astonishing run (orignal edition, 1967, and subsequent revised editions in 1972, 1978, 1982, 1992). Our forthcoming sesquicentennial in 2017 is the perfect time to make this gem new again. With all new photographs from the prestigious All Canada Photos archive, and text throughout from our very own Roy MacGregor, we plan, no less, to out-do the original with a breath-taking pictorial tour from Newfoundland to British Columbia to the Arctic. Reflecting his abiding love for this country, its history, its people--and highlighting the extraordinary changes since 1967--Roy MacGregor's text is the perfect complement to a collection of stunning, and rarely seen, photographs from many of the best photographers in Canada
