Summary
From Confederation Day in 1867, John A. Macdonald finessed a reluctant union of 4 provinces in central and eastern Canada into a strong nation, despite indifference from Britain and annexationist sentiment in the United States. Macdonald faced constant crises, from Louis Riel's two rebellions to the Pacific Scandal that almost undid his government. Gwyn paints a portrait of Canada and its leaders through these formative years and shows us Macdonald the man, as he wrestles with whether Riel should hang, marries for the second time, deals with the birth of a disabled child, and the assassination of his close friend Darcy McGee. Some descriptions of violence. Sequel to “John A: the man who made us : the life and times of John A. Macdonald”. Winner 2011 Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing. c2011
