Sir John A. Macdonald : His Life, Our Times. Volume Two, 1867-1891Book - 2011
This major biography is the second volume of the bestselling, John A: The Man Who Made Us, by respected journalist Richard Gwyn. John A. Macdonald, Canada's first and most important prime minister, is the man who made the Confederation happen, who built this country over the next quarter century and who shaped what it is today. From Confederation Day in 1867, where this volume picks up, Macdonald finessed a reluctant union of four provinces in central and eastern canada into a strong nation, despite indifference from Britain and annexationist sentiment in the United States.
