About this book

Snow. A source of passion, creativity and ingenuity – what would Canada be without it? From the time of their arrival in North America, Europeans had to contend with snow, as had Aboriginal Peoples for centuries before them. Snow has always influenced the way we live and our ability to adapt – look no further than our constantly evolving winter sports. Snow is not only the muse of artists but also a driver of the economy. Featuring 300 artifacts, Snow presents a cultural history of this definitive northern precipitation. This souvenir catalogue includes over 60 images – from epic snowstorms to satirical cartoons – that reveal how snow has shaped the Canadian identity. You'll never look at winter the same way again.
