...<b>Canada Tomorrow’s Giant. A New Nation and People</b>, Hutchison, Bruce
5 Hutchison, Bruce ...Canada Tomorrow’s Giant. A New Nation and People
New York: Alfred A Knopf, 1957. First Edition Hardcover
 28 illustrations in half-tone and 6 maps. 
Blue green cloth covered boards. Gilt titles and blind-stamped titles/decoration on front. Bindings tight and square. Text clean. Minimal shelf handling. Dust jacket with price has light shelf wear. The author invites his thousands of readers to join him in ‘a casual, disordered tour across the nation and some of its wilderness' to discover the new Canada.
To this rediscovery, Mr. Hutchison, brings his uncanny ability to stand back and appraise familiar things, his warmly humorous relish for incongruities and quirks of character, his deep sense of the poetry of history and of the widely contrasting beauty of Canada's vast share of this continent-in a word, all the ingredients that make his books best-sellers.
Against the background of his historical and political knowledge, this book is itself a tremendous contribution to Canada's process of becoming 'a nation in mind' as well as by constitution. This is a glowing and vastly entertaining report that will rouse discussion in each of the ten provinces that it analyzes.
