This paper looks at how Nelles chronologically describes the human development of the area now known as Canada, and attributes much of this development to two factors: the environment and the meeting between Europeans and First Nations. The paper discusses how the problem in this description is that Nelles succumbs to Euro-centrism by predominantly focusing on the European history of Canada. The apper argues that this focus on the European history relatively ignores the 14,000 years of First Nations history in Canada.
