Cobblestone: Canada and the United States (March 1988 Magazine Issue)
"For readers of U.S. history, a good way to begin a thorough study of Canada is by relating its history to that of the United States. In this issue, we investigate our long relationship with Canada. What you discover might surprise you and hopefully will encourage you to learn more about other ways in which Canada and the United States, and Canada and other countries, interact." — From "The View From the Crow's Nest" (page 4)

GOOD: This issue of “The History Magazine for Young People” is in good condition, showing some signs of use and wear (including a minimal amount of staining that does not obscure the text). The pages are free of writing. The previous owner’s address label has been covered.
Since this issue is from the 1980s, it is in black-and-white, rather than in today’s full-color issues. The content, however, is still relevant.
From the introduction: “Although Canada is close to many U.S. states, most of us know nothing about the cultural, social, political, and economic situation there. Many of us are not even familiar with Canada’s geographic make-up—it provinces, cities, rivers, lakes, and mountains.”
