A People’s History of Quebec is a lively guide to a little-known part of North American history. It tells of the settlement of the St. Lawrence Valley, but also of the Montreal and Quebec-based explorers and traders who travelled, mapped, and inhabited most of North America, and embrothered the peoples they met. Based on meticulous research, [[Jacques Lacoursière]] and [[Robin Philpot]] connect everyday life to the events that emerged as historical turning points in the life of a people, thus shedding new light on Quebec’s 450-year history—and the historical forces that lie behind its two recent efforts to gain independence[http://www.barakabooks.com/catalogue/a-peoples-history-of-quebec/].
