This is an excellent book for those not schooled here but who came as immigrants to Canada. Parts of it were a revelation. If I have one reservation it is that the parts played by First Nations get only a small mention in the book as a whole, though there is a heartfelt statement of how they were shafted by the English, in the section on the 1812 war.
