Different Strokes

Answers to the Perplexing Differences
Between Americans and Canadians

Drawing on the research of eminent historians, Different Strokes explains the differences between Americans and Canadians from the outset of settlement to the continuingly perplexing differences we see today. The book looks at the differences from the beginning and then pinpoints the divergences over the passage of time and varying circumstances. The common explanation that America was peopled by Revolutionaries and Canada by Loyalists is far too simplistic; in fact, the real story is far more complicated and much more interesting. Different Strokes tells the compelling story of how the differences between Americans and Canadians developed over time.
