There are a number of good books on Canadian history but
it's difficult to name just one. However, the following should help.
The Story of Canada by Donald Creighton
MacMillan Co. 1971 ISBN 0 7705 1360 3
for something a little more in depth
Dominion of the North amd Canada's First Century, both
by Donald Creighton and published by MacMillan.
The first begins with the French Regime and ends around
1950, the second is the story after Confederation from 1867 on.
Creighton was a history professor at University of Toronto
and required reading for any Canadian History student.
However, don't let that scare you off, he is very readable.
