612 pages including index. Copyright date 1945. Written prior to the end of WWII hostilities, this volume presents a fascinating province-by-province look at Canada's greatly expanded wartime industrialization, her governmental departments, and the companies and men responsible for this great development. Also presents Canada as a land of limitless forests, quick running streams producing tremendous waterpower, ocean-like lakes, vast stillness, and abundant wildlife. Book was published to introduce Canadians and friends of Canada abroad to this country's industrial capacity since, upon the termination of hostilities, it would be positioned to produce far more than this country of twelve million could consume internally.

Contains many dozens of black and white archival photographs of significant personalities, smoke stack industries, hydro-electric installations and much more.
