Book Pick: Kanata

Author: Don Gillmor
Publisher: Viking Canada
Price: $34 (Hardcover)

From the magazine journalist and author of Canada: A People’s History comes Kanata, a fictionalized take on the forming of the nation. The compelling historical read maps the country through Western Canadian half-Native teacher Michael Mountain Horse, a descendent of accomplished English-Canadian cartographer David Thompson. Paired with a detailed sketch of Thompson’s life and exploration, Gillmor uses both characters as anchors to bring readers from the birth of a nation through the turn of the 20th century and beyond.
