You might also want to look at some of Farley Mowatt's books. They are very well written and entertaining.

I also highly recommend any and all of the Flashman series of historical novels by George MacDonald Fraser. They will leave you wiser and much more amused!

So, any new questions?

I do like some historical fiction but think it best to first learn the real History before muddying those waters.

PA & OR taught me a bit about state capitols. In PA neither Philly nor Pittsburgh are well placed as a capitol city. They're more interstate competitors much larger than the other PA cities.
Harrisburg makes a fine capitol and elevates Harrisburg's economic prospects. In Oregon Salem serves the same needs and benefits from the state institutions in town.

Canada's population hugs it's Southern border and like Brazil needs it's interior opened up. After intensive study (5 minutes with a map) I've determined the future of Canada is best served by moving your Capitol to Flin Flon Manitoba.

Face it, Josiah Flintabbatey Flonatin better personifies the average Canadian of English stock than mounties fallen into disrepute or Froggy trapper types gone native.

Are all boaters in Canada as dumb as the ones depicted in this video?

I find that most Alberta drivers are the worst drivers in the world also. I live here and find myself cringing most times that I am out and about.
We have now implemented the most stringent distracted driving law in this country. Not helping lol

Don't forget Pierre Burton, he has some wonderful books that are also entertaining.

I'm almost embarrassed to report I've never read any Pierre Burton. I'll have to change that. Any recommendations?

He wrote all kinds of books. Some on the Klondike and world war one also world war two. His book Vimy is good. Tell about how the Canadians took Vimy ridge.

Now I'm hooked. I just hope it went better than Gallipoli. I watched "The King's Speech" last week and it was obvious the UK needed her Empire's help in the two World Wars. It might have gone better with Aussie scrambled eggs in charge.
