Descripción

Personal inscription by the author on front end page. A very nice copy without any flaws. Using a wealth of contemporary and historical pictorial sources, this lavishly illustrated book 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 the Canadian confederation. The book also recounts the first attempts to cross Canada by car and retraces historical paths of explorers and pioneers. Size: 9 X 9.5 " 186 Pages 1.2 Kg. N° de ref. de la librería 46839
