    The Road to Confederation On a special Canada Day edition of The House, we go back in time to look at how politics created Canada and how, a century and a half later, the decisions of that time.   Most impressively though, this book is filled with subtle, and not so subtle, commentary on Canada as a whole. The introduction by Donald Wright says that this book “reveals as much about the s as it does the s.” The Road to Confederation tells a story of great optimism with a tone of cautious pessimism.

Marked by beautiful, carefully crafted prose, The Road to Confederation reflects a style that perhaps no contemporary historian would dare: romantic, suspenseful, fearlessly narrative, and full of unapologetic opinions.

If not politically correct and sanitized, it is a fascinating exploration of the personalities, the political logjams, even the debt problems that marked the period leading to by: The Road to Confederation, clear and well-written, blending wide general considerations with intimate personal studies and with detailed local knowledge, is an important contribution to the flow of new historical writing which the Centenary has provoked."--The Historical Journal"A beautifully written book."--Canadian Historical Review, "Professor Donald Creighton is Canada's most distinguished historian.
