This book shows how the natural landscape and the built environment are both the product of and actors in the creation of ideological notions of Canada. Interdisciplinary in focus, it offers a perspective on land, landscape, and landmarks in Canada by scholars from the UK, Ireland, and the US, as well as Canadian-based scholars from France, Ireland, and Canada.
