This book gives a panoramic view of the rise and progress of the Church in Canada. It has all the elements of a great saga, including that of early faithful missionaries preaching in eastern Canada without “purse or scrip” in the 1830s and 1840s, and the exodus of early Canadian converts who joined with the main body of the Church in Ohio, Missouri, and Illinois, and then trekked across the Great Plains to Utah in the Rocky Mountains. It tells of Mormon pioneers from Utah arriving in southern Alberta after 1887, having made a second grand trek to escape their persecutors, this time north rather than west, and details the settlement of Mormons in Alberta. It is the story of an ongoing missionary effort from late nineteenth century, throughout the twentieth, and into the twenty-first with a vast number of missionaries and the sustained effort of thousands of lay leaders and members laboring relentlessly to build up a Church that now consists of nearly 200,000 members.

I cannot say I have read the complete history, but have hit bits and pieces that are of immediate interest. I have discovered stories of people I know, and events that I saw, and events that I have been told. Great read.
I am grateful to have this wonderful historical resource
Informative and easy to read. Good references makes this book an authoritative source on church history in Canada. Fantastic pictures and graphs make the book fun to read. Extraordinary detail is included for every stake in Canada, including names of Stake leaders throughout the country. It is also very up to date, using information through 2016.
This book covers Mormonism right across Canada. The charts and information were very interesting and I learned many facts that were new to me. I highly recommend this book to others.
