Welcome to Fadedpage.com!
Faded Page is an archive of eBooks that are provided completely free to everyone. The books are produced by volunteers all over the world, and we believe they are amongst the highest quality eBooks anywhere. Every one has been scanned, run through OCR software, proofed, formatted and assembled extremely carefully, using hundreds of volunteer hours. These books are public domain in Canada (because we follow the Canadian copyright laws), but if you are in another country, you should satisfy yourself that you are not breaking the copyright laws of your own country by downloading them. You are free to do whatever you like with these books, but we hope that mainly...you will enjoy reading them.

This is another of our continuing special series of texts covering the ten provinces and three territories of Canada. Today we’re staying in the prairies but going to the easternmost prairie province of Manitoba. It’s known for its agricultural production of grains, potatoes and sunflower seeds and for Canada’s only Arctic deep-water seaport in Churchill, where world-famous polar bear and beluga whale watching takes place.
We have a few books about the early history of Manitoba including The Red River Colony: A Chronicle of the Beginnings of Canada, First Furrows: A History of the Early Settlement of the Red River Country by Alfred Campbell Garrioch, and a historical fiction account of Lord Selkirk’s Red River Colony in Mine Inheritance by Frederick Niven.
Other eBooks specifically related to Manitoba include Birds of Manitoba by Ernest Thompson Seton, Grain, a novel about life on a grain farm by Robert Stead, and The Real Home-Keeper, a cookbook and home-management guide for Winnipeg brides introducing them to the Winnipeg businesses of 1914.
