'THE CANADIANS,'' by Andrew H. Malcolm, is not a pretty-picture book, all wilderness parks and icicles . Before writing this book, Mr. Malcolm spent four years in Canada as chief of the Toronto bureau of The New York Times. Malcolm, is not a pretty-picture book, all wilderness parks and icicles, nor is it a travel guide, all restaurants. Instead it's an ambitious, enthusiastic and wide-ranging study of a country recently thought, even by those who live there, to be unambitious, unenthusiastic and narrow-ranging. Instead of sitting comfortably in the awa triangle, as he could easily have done, he traveled the land by car, train, plane, dog sled and canoe, and numerous other modes of transportation, including foot.
