  • Short Description
Twenty-one Canadians share their personal connections with a unique object from the ROM’s collection in this extraordinary volume.

For the past 99 years, the Royal Ontario Museum has introduced its visitors to objects from all corners of the globe. In celebration of the Museum’s centennial, twenty-one Canadian writers, painters, filmmakers — even an astronaut — share their personal connections with a unique object from the Museum’s collection in this extraordinary volume.

Read bestselling author and anthropologist Wade Davis’s insights about the Hudson Strait Kayak, the presence of the Shiva Nataraja in award-winning filmmaker Deepa Mehta’s household, or astronaut Chris Hadfield’s thoughts on a very rare type of meteorite, the largest of its kind ever found in Canada, and more.

The ROM, in partnership with The Walrus Foundation and House of Anansi Press, brings you an anthology of Canada’s finest writing. Combining curatorial expertise and intimate perspectives, this writing is complemented by stunning contemporary photography and striking documentary shots, emphasizing the personal experience within these natural and cultural masterpieces.
