Young Canadians get a glimpse of our history through the fascinating biographies of five heroic Canadians who have confronted danger or adversity in brave, resourceful and admirable ways.
Included are Madeleine de Vercheress, the young defender of the family fort in New France; Dr. Norman Bethune, the innovative surgeon of war-torn Spain and China; Sergeant Tommy Prince, whose daring exploits made him the most decorated Native Canadian soldier; Terry Fox and his inspirational Marathon of Hope for cancer research; and Roberta Bondar, the first female Canadian explorer of space.
