Summary, etc.: Commemorating the two-hundredth anniversary of Sir John A. Macdonald's birth this is a refreshing look at Canada's first prime minister. In a breezy and engaging style, Lindy Mechefske traces Macdonald's life through some of the common foods of the day, from mutton, quince, and gooseberries to hare, cow heel, and ox cheek. Along the way, she reveals how to concoct the fried oysters served at the Charlottetown Conference and how a roast duck dinner saved the dominion. Print Run 1,500.
