Rise to Greatness
The History of Canada From the Vikings to the PresentBook - 2014
Controversial newspaper publisher and historian Conrad Black has written a definitive history of Canada. This is a revealing account of the people and events that shaped a nation. Spanning from 874 to 2014, and beginning with Canada's first inhabitants and the early explorers, this masterful history challenges our perception of our history and Canada's role in the world. From Champlain to Carleton, Baldwin and Lafontaine, to MacDonald, Laurier and King; from Canada's role in peace and war to Quebec's quest for autonomy, Black takes on sweeping themes.
