For this particular books about Canada post I have included only a non-fictional selection. I seem to have chosen books of a more humorous nature of which there seem to be quite a few!
If you want to BE Canadian this list will certainly help you – though the constant marrying together of the words “weird” and “Canada” does make me wonder exactly what is going on in the land of maple syrup, mounties and ice hockey!
If after reading all that you still want to visit you will find a selection of great travel books to assist you with planning at the the end of the post.
