An excellent history of the Hudson's Bay Company. Enjoyable reading, and I recommend also that one should read Fatal Passage by Ken McGoogan shortly before or after reading this book.

A competent biography of a man whose life I remember. I didn't like "Dief the Chief" then, and this book, and the subsequent events have not improved him in my opinion. But, a necessary part of a Canadian's education.

Would love to give this one a more accurate 3 1/2 stars. I could not muster a 4 for it. A nice tight little history of the Liberal Party of Canada and how they lost their way, leading to the debacle of the last federal election. Completely devoid of any humour, really just a dry political recanting of a party whose best days are seemingly behind them.
I wish there were a Canadian version of Hunter Thompson to tell this tale.

A bit dated, but interesting snapshot of Canada in the 1990s
