In Michigan, we have a well-developed and sophisticated appreciation for our northern/eastern/southern neighbor. But there is always more to learn, and Canada Day is as good as any to expand your knowledge. Find some delightful answers at An American’s Guide to Canada. Its author explains:
A few words from the author: Canada is a wonderful place. Its relatively small population and expansive landscape give it a distinctive character, a character that Canadians are constantly trying to enunciate and defend. Sometimes it feels like a small town. Some years ago, my Canadian sweetie and I had a couple of people over for popcorn, and for two consecutive nationally-aired commercials, one of the people in the room pointed at the TV and said, "Hey. I know that person." This country is endearing and civilized and charming, and I am very, very fond of it. I hope I can convey some of that fondness in these pages.
