Summary: Canadian characters come to life in the History Television series of the same name hosted and overseen by the enormously talented Patrick Watson. Based on the award-winning series, Watson's first two collections of these biographies have already sold over 20,000 copies in Canada.In this third volume we meet more fascinating Canadians: * Georges Vanier, Canada's first French Governor-General, and one of Canada's great...est leaders whose religion actually informed his long and eventful life; * Samuel Cunard, who founded a shipping line which is now an international line which still bears the family name; * Alexander Fleming, the "timemaster" who invented Standard Time; * Fred Rose, the only communist ever elected to Canadian Parliament, who was arrested as a spy and turned out to be the man who'd been feeding Igor Gouzenko information; * the brilliant native artist Robert Markle; and * General John DeChastelain, who is presently in Belfast trying to hammer out a peace agreement with the IRA and who has just discovered a looming family secret: his mother Marion was a spy.Written in his inimitable and dramatic style, the 16 minibiographies in this collection showcase Patrick Watson's ability to make Canadian history tremendously exciting and appealing.
