Happy Canada Day from all of us at Faded Page and Distributed Proofreaders Canada!
Our final volume of The Chronicles of Canada has now been posted to Faded Page, just over 14 years since we began the 32-volume series, our first ÜberProject. The series was edited by George McKinnon Wrong and H. H. Langton with each volume written by various authors. Some of the authors are well-known Canadians such as Stephen Leacock, Sir Joseph Pope, Agnes C. Laut, and the final author to enter the public domain, W. Stewart Wallace.
The series, first published in 1914/1915, approaches Canada’s early history in a narrative and romantic fashion covering the major events and figures of Canadian history from the earliest beginnings up until Post-Confederation Canada (the early 1910’s). Written for popular reading, it sets forth in historic continuity the principal events and movements in Canada: from the original aborigines to the Norse Voyages, then to European exploration and settlements, to the Railway Builders and finally to the early years of Confederation and the Dominion. The volumes also include many illustrations and maps.
The Chronicles of Canada is one of our Special Collections. If you like what we do and want to see more of it on Faded Page, come join us and proofread a few pages. For more information about how to volunteer, check out our companion site, Distributed Proofreaders Canada.
