Masterful, ambitious, and groundbreaking, this is a major new history of our country by one of our most respected thinkers and historians -- a book every Canadian should own.
     From the acclaimed biographer and historian Conrad Black comes the definitive history of Canada -- a revealing, groundbreaking account of the people and events that shaped a nation.
     Spanning 874 to 2014, and beginning from Canada''s first inhabitants and the early explorers, this masterful history challenges our perception of our history and Canada''s role in the world.

Black is a financier, and a columnist in the National Post, which he founded, and the National Review Online and Huffington Po...
