The category for this item is listed as "undetermined" whereas I would have thought it belongs as "historical non-fiction." Although there may be significant author opinion offered throughout the item, most non-fictional accounts of history are recorded from the singular perspective of the author.

An accurate account of the socio-economic and herculean feat undertaken by Colonel By through the inheritance of the project to complete the construction of the Rideau Canal, the strategically critical fail-safe route from Quebec city to Upper Canada, while navigating the political & financial challenges presented by the British treasury.
