A welcome addition to the Wow Canada! series, Courage and Compassion profiles ten individuals whose incredible acts have protected the human rights that we hold most dear. The names and accomplishments of some will be immediately familiar to readers while others may be more unsung heroes, but all share a strong belief that they must act according to their conscience to make Canada and the world a better place. From different eras in Canadian history, readers will meet Jeanne Mance, Josiah Henson, Nellie McClung, Lester B. Pearson, Roger Obata, June Callwood, Judy Feld Carr, Elijah Harper, Craig Kielburger, and Hannah Taylor. An in-depth and fascinating portrait of each person delves into their life and times, and highlights their strongest accomplishments. Through the extensive use of historical images, we also get a wonderful picture of these heroes' worlds, a visual tour through aspects of Canada and these rich lives, past and present. The book spans 400 years and highlights the most important crusades of these times. War and peace, health care, slavery, equal rights, education, poverty, Native rights, racism, child labor: these are all causes taken on with conviction by the individuals profiled in Courage and Compassion.
