A Road for Canada traces the history of the Trans-Canada Highway, from its origins, conceived more than a century ago as a wagon road, to its present-day status as a crucial artery linking Canada from ocean to ocean. Lavishly illustrated the book recounts the first attempts to cross Canada by car and tells the stories of the dreamers who persevered with their vision of a national road.
