History of Ottawa

Commoners' Publishing announced planner and historian David Gordon's Town and Crown, An Illustrated History of Canada's Capital:
It is the story of the transformation of the region from a sub-arctic wilderness portage to an attractive modern metropolis with a high quality of life. The book examines the period from 1800-2011, and is the first major study that covers both sides of the Ottawa River, addressing the settlement history of aboriginal, French and English peoples.
Its transformation from sub-arctic is still a work in progress, but Gordon has been working on the city's evolution for years.

I wasn't previously aware of Commoners Publishing of Ottawa, but it seems to facilitating a kind of academic self-publishing system, and it has an intriguing line of professorial authors,particularly in its Invenire line
