J.L. Granastein, One of Canada's most noted historians! : A word from readers

J.L. GranasteinDonna Ward's books push reading levels higher than the norm. I admire the illustrations and especially the reading lists and the excerpts scattered throughout the text. I am pleased that chronology is her organizing principle. She is doing fine work.

"I really enjoyed talking to you at the Winnipeg conference. I have been reading Who Killed Canadian History and the opinions expressed are striking a chord. It is good to know I am not alone in thinking that young Canadians are being deprived of a fascinating and vibrant heritage. Thanks for helping to keep me inspired."
