Thank you to the author for sending me this book for an honest review through Netgalley.
I started read this book with no knowledge about the background of comics, especially for Canada. I have always loved comics, but never really read anything that speaks behind the scenes of how it started, what is the philosophy behind it.
I expected this book to teach me a lot of new things, and help me see the world in a different point of view, and I wasn’t disappointing at all. This is not a book that will deprive you from your sleep at night – in fact, it is one of those books where you read to learn, and it might seem boring at times, but that is only because it is full with information at all times. Wonderful read.
Before I begin… /u/TwerpTwo, how can I thank you? What you did is crazy. Indeed. 19 postcards in a single envelope? You are my angel! Seriously!!!
The Prairies in Canada. A Prairie rainbow. A wonderful view and an incredible nature.
The Canadian moose is the undisputed king of the antler world. To many people, it seems kind of ugly, but to me, I bet he wants cuddles hehe 😀
Greetings from Brandon, Manitoba. I like the way this card is printed. Those little squares and all different sides of the city. It is amazing and very creative. I love it.
Rocky Mountain Elk. Is he posing? I find this so adorable, and I don’t even know why 😀 I think the elk is so cute
Equestrian training was discontinued in 1966, but the mounted tradition remains alive in The RCMP Musical Ride. I love those guys.
Canada owes much to its First Nations people, the true founders of our country. They remind me so much of those people from Peru that have similar clothing. I am in love with one song that I saw them play when I was in Cannes. “El condor pasa”. You need to hear it!
A field of sunflowers – another beautiful prairie scene. I love sunflowers. They are so positive. They always turn towards the sun.
Grizzly Bears are omnivorous eating everything from berries to small mammals – but they are really expert fishermen. Normally a solitary animal, they congregate along streams and rivers during salmon spawns to enjoy the abundance of food. But don’t be surprised if you see them fighting over a good fishing spot
The northern lights (Aurora Borealis) can be seen on a clear winter night from many parts of northern Canada. I want to see this so badly!
These adorable black bear cubs will grow to be big burly inhabitants of Canada’s dense bush and forest. Look at the way they kiss. So adorable!
Greetings from Brandon, Manitoba again. I want to visit this city. From the postcards, it seem like there is a lot of things to visit.
The moose is one of Canada’s most massive mammals. A cow moose, such as this mother with her young, may weigh 360 kg (800 lbs).
Grain elevators are a common scene on the Prairies. I love this view. I spent 10 minutes staring at this postcard!
Moose are the largest member of the deer family. An adult male can stand 1.9 meters at the shoulder and weighs approximately 475 kilograms. These are truly one of nature’s gentle giants.
This magnificent Gray wolf (Timber wolf) is often misunderstood as an indiscriminate killer. Not true! While the wolf does kill some large game, it is mostly the old, the weak and the diseased that are taken.
Greetings from the Ice Hockey capital of the World – Canada. I’ve never seen an Ice Hockey game ever, and I want to go so badly, and cheer.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). I love their uniform! Such a nice card.
Common Loon. I have never seen a loon before. And I love how it looks. It reminds me of the black swan even though they are a lot different.
Wonderful picture of some interesting Canadian places. It has the National anthem on the back and I am happy to write it down:
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
