A People's History of Quebec, the first concise English-language history of Quebec as told by Jacques Lacoursière, will be in bookstores on July 2, 2009



    MONTREAL, June 22 /CNW Telbec/ - On the eve of Quebec's National Holiday,
Baraka Books, a new English-language publisher, proudly announces that
renowned Quebec historian Jacques Lacoursière can finally be read in English.
A People's History of Quebec will be ideal for summer visitors eager to know
more about Quebec.
    It tells the fascinating tale of the settlement of the St. Lawrence
Valley, but also of the explorers and traders who travelled, mapped, and
inhabited most of the continent, and "embrothered the peoples" they met, as
Jack Kerouac wrote. Jacques Lacoursière and co-author Robin Philpot connect
everyday life to historical turning points in the life of a people, and help
understand Quebec's 450-year history and the two recent attempts to gain
independence.
    A People's History of Quebec, Jacques Lacoursière and Robin Philpot, 207
pages, $19.95. Orders: LitDistCo: 1-800-591-6250
