AUTHOR

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 greatest 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.Watson, Patrick is the author of 'Canadians Biographies of a Nation' with ISBN 9781552783184 and ISBN 1552783189.
